About this course

Registered veterinary nurses are currently in short supply. So get your career in caring for animals off to a great start by enrolling on our programme. You will be eligible to register as a vet nurse with the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons as soon as you graduate – so you can start working straightaway. 

Our internationally recognised course provides an excellent grounding in all of the professional skills required for registration, as well as providing you with additional skills and specialisms culminating in your own scientific research project.

Course details

This course gives you the knowledge, skills and attributes of a graduate level veterinary nurse, as well as the professional registration required to practise in the UK.  You will get an opportunity to spend up to 60 weeks in veterinary practice, often in some of the most prestigious veterinary establishments in Scotland. With these qualifications you will quickly gain employment as a veterinary nurse and will enjoy accelerated promotion prospects. 

We work with the College of Animal Welfare so we can place students in practice placements throughout the United Kingdom and Channel Islands. This means that, if you want to, you can spend half your time in Edinburgh, the cultural capital of Scotland, and the other half closer to home.
