Ages 15-18 •
London OR Live Online
The Young Vet Summer Experience gives students aged 15-18 a 360-degree, fully immersive experience of working as a vet in London.
Over the course of 15 days, students aged 15-18 will have some of the most prestigious experiences of veterinary medicine that one can imagine: shadowing top vets in an animal hospital; conducting consultations with real patients and clients; and attending a private coaching session with vet school admission officers and current vet students on how to excel in your vet school applications.
Also available on the Summer Experience are immersive visits to Greenwich Equine Centre and a city farm.
Join us for a life-changing experience that will serve as an outstanding differentiator on your university application form and set you up for a future as a successful vet.
