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 The Royal Veterinary College.
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.

We do not anticipate any Covid-related issues preventing us from delivering the in-person programme. Any government guidance on Covid-related safeguarding (such as the wearing of masks and social distancing) will of course be adhered to. We have managed to successfully deliver in-person programmes during the Covid-19 pandemic (including during the summers of 2020 and 2021), with excellent feedback. We are therefore highly experienced in giving students a fantastic experience even with social distancing rules in place.
In the unlikely event that the in-person programme is cancelled because of Covid-19 then students will have two options: i) move to the next in-person date; ii) move to the ‘Live Online’ version of the programme you selected and be refunded the difference in price. (If you pay via credit because you postponed a previous booking then the credit note will be reissued to you in full).
If you are trying to register and the registration box is not appearing it is likely because of firewall restrictions on your desktop device. You may wish to try on your mobile device instead. Alternatively, please email email@example.com with details of the programme you want to register for. We will reserve your place immediately and send you a link to pay by card online.
