Solihull College has teamed up with Oxford Brookes to launch two new higher education courses for Registered Veterinary Nurses starting in September.

The Foundation Degree and BSc in Advanced Veterinary Nursing Studies allow qualified veterinary nurses to take their training to the next level and pursue careers where specialist clinical knowledge is required. Learning whilst working, the new courses seek to develop clinical, academic and employability skills and challenge students to think about their clinical practice in light of current research and developments in the profession.

Students studying the BSc course will also automatically take the industry-recognised Royal College of Veterinary Surgeon's Diploma in Advanced Veterinary Nursing.

David Evans, head of the Department of Biological and Medical Sciences at Oxford Brookes, said “I am delighted the team at Solihull College has been successful in the validation of these higher education qualifications. The vet nursing team at the college can be commended on its dedication to drive forward the profession and there is no doubt these qualifications will prove to be highly popular."

Staff from Solihull College and Oxford Brookes will be unveiling more details about the courses at the British Small Animal Veterinary Association (BSAVA) Congress from 3-6 April at the ICC in Birmingham. The Congress, which attracts a large number of vets and vets nurses, is one of the premier veterinary events in the UK and will offer a great opportunity to learn more about the new courses.
