Your Course

We are thrilled that you are considering studying Veterinary Nursing at the RVC. We offer unbeatable training and experience for undergraduate veterinary nurses. You will learn from inspiring and enthusiastic experts and benefit from a hands-on learning environment where you will master all the essential nursing skills and techniques, and have opportunities to further your development. 

Both the BSc and the FdSc course will follow the same curriculum in the first three years of study. The FdSc students will complete their course after three years and graduate as a qualified veterinary nurse. If you are studying for the BSc, you will continue studying an additional year in which you will complete a research project in an area of your choice and graduate with the BSc qualification after this fourth year.
