The RVC Sutton Trust Summer School is designed for students to enjoy a flavour of university life through living at the Royal Veterinary College’s Hawkshead Campus for a week during the school holidays. Students take part in lectures, fun evening activities and even a veterinary themed science fair! Firm friendships are formed during this week which is intended as an introduction to higher education as well as a chance to meet like-minded prospective veterinary medicine and biological sciences students. During the week you will visit our farm, animal hospital, equine facilities and meet professionals and students who work in a range of animal career pathways.

Applications will open in January 2020.
