Each year, we offer places to students engaged in veterinary training around the world.

Working as a member of the clinical team, you will learn in small groups through observation, discussion and practical experience. While at the RVC, you will receive feedback on your clinical work each week and be formally assessed at the end of each clinical rotation. Mentors on external placements will also provide feedback on your work with them.
