School and College students

We recognise the importance of providing the opportunity for students to experience a vocational work placement.

Veterinary based work placements are increasingly popular. Demand for placements is always very high.

We require each applicant to complete a Work Experience application form and provide references, one of which must be the applicant’s form teacher who must also confirm expected GCSE/A level results, in the appropriate subjects.


If your application is successful we will contact you to confirm your booking and arrange an informal interview. This will give you an opportunity to ask us any questions you may have and find out more about your placement. Please note –

  • All applicants must be at least 16 at the time of the placement
  • Applications will take up to 6 weeks to be processed, please allow sufficient time and return forms promptly
  • All placements are for one week only (Mon-Fri) and subject to availability
  • All placement offers are subject to a satisfactory Health and Safety risk assessment
  • All placements (and interviews) are conducted at our main Goldington Road practice in Bedford

You are advised to apply for a placement at least 12 months in advance

Please e-mail your application for the attention of Mrs Hannah Colborne, Senior Admin Nurse
