  • Absolutely! Many of our graduates do this. You’ll also be able to take large animal CPD sessions, and even our Farm Only programme, which we launched this year.

  • The choice is yours. Our group spans across 10 European countries, so there are plenty of options. In your application, you can apply for one specific practice or a number of practices in your preferred area. We’ll discuss the available vacancies with you and contact the relevant practices to arrange an interview.
