Hartpury University has developed a new equine vet nursing degree course, which will provide its graduates with the clinical skills and knowledge needed to have a successful and rewarding career in a highly valued profession, it says.

The four-year course is accredited by the RCVS and includes a placement at an RCVS-approved equine vet nursing training practice, giving students valuable experience and connections for their careers. The university’s facilities include a clinical skills centre, a commercial equine therapy centre, an equestrian centre with 230 horses at livery, and an experienced teaching team of vet nurses with clinical experience.

Catherine Phillips, head of the vet nursing department, said: ‘We’re preparing our students with the clinical and professional skills they need to help drive forward a vibrant, sustainable profession.’
