Level 3 Diploma in Veterinary Nursing (Equine Pathway) now available!


We are thrilled to announce that we now offer the City & Guilds Level 3 Diploma in Veterinary Nursing (Equine Pathway) qualification!

Available to start in February on a block release basis from our Huntingdon centre, the opportunity to study this recognised qualification is set to be in high demand!

The role of an Equine Veterinary Nurse is a varied role, with no two days the same. As an equine veterinary nursing student, you will have the chance to study with like minded people and become a highly valued member of practice. Throughout the programme you will cover emergency and critical care, neonatal care, pre-operative support for horses – and much more!

With the course starting soon, enrolment is now open! For more information about the course, and details about how to apply, visit

FREE Training Practice Approval to equine veterinary practices before 31 December 2019!

To study this course, students must be working in an equine or mixed (equine and small animal) veterinary practice that is approved by the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons (RCVS) to train veterinary nurses; a Training Practice (TP) or Auxiliary Training Practice (aTP).

In order to celebrate the launch of this new course, we are pleased to offer free Training Practice approval to any equine veterinary practice that submits their completed TP application form back to the College before 31 December 2019.

We are also in a position to support block release students with accommodation throughout their training if required. For further information on availability and associated costs please contact us.
