Islington Young People Discover - The Royal Veterinary College

A chance for Islington young people to discover the campuses and courses run by the Royal Veterinary College.  The Farm Manager will accompany young people to visit the RVC open day travelling to both the Hawkshead Campus at Potters Bar and the Camden Campus on Royal College Street.  This is a chance for young people interested in courses including Veterinary Science, Veterinary Nursing, Veterinary Medicine and Veterinary Physiotherapy to visit the campuses and find out more.  These courses are often heavily over subscribed and its important to find out as much as you can about how to go about applying as soon as possible if you are interested.  If you are planning on applying for veterinary medicine a visit to the Universities is a must and there are few opportunities.  The colleges themselves are very interesting places so definitely worth a visit for anyone with an interest in animal or medical science.
