Royal Veterinary College

Veterinary Nursing

The BSc Veterinary Nursing programme is a full-time four-year course incorporating the FdSc in Veterinary Nursing. The FdSc is fully accredited by the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons (RCVS) leading to registration with the RCVS after the first three years of study. BSc students in their fourth and final year are thus fully qualified veterinary nurses and many of them work part time in practice during their final year. The programme is taught at the Hawkshead campus of the RVC, University of London (near Potter Bar in Hertfordshire), with external placements at veterinary practices. You will complete 2100 hours of practical training within the first three foundation years of the programme, at the end of which (providing you have met the assessment requirements), you will achieve your professional veterinary nursing qualification.
