A free webinar to help potential veterinary students decide whether they want to enter the profession – and what to do if they choose to – will take place in October.

Oncore’s free 30-minute webinar will provide advice on entering the veterinary profession.

The 30-minute session will give budding vets information and advice on entering the profession, including:

  • an outline of the universities available
  • information about work experience placements
  • how to get the best out of open days

Explore career options

While the webinar is a stand-alone event, those who want further information can book onto a paid-for tutored three-week course – The Veterinary Career-Planning Toolkit – which will explore careers within the profession and assist those who decide the veterinary science degree is the path for them.

Informed decisions

The concept for the course came about when veterinary educator Jenny Moffett, managing director of Skills Tree, realised potential students were often not equipped with the necessary information to make an informed decision when applying to veterinary school.

Ms Moffett approached VN Jill Macdonald, managing director of online veterinary training provider Oncore, with her idea to address the issue, leading to the creation of the The Veterinary Career-Planning Toolkit.

The free vet career planning webinar, presented by Ms Moffett, will take place on 5 October at 7pm.
