Want to be a vet?

Do you love animals? Could you imagine yourself working with them every day, helping them to heal from injuries, diseases and traumas? We can help you to become a vet, a vet nurse or technician. 

You can make use of our links to Scotland’s three vet schools, and vet practices all over the country where you can get work experience. On this website, you’ll find inspiring stories from practising vets, and students who are finding out what it’s like to study veterinary. They’ll encourage you, and let you see what life could be like – the video stories show you how there are many routes you can take when you qualify.

If you’re already working as vet, nurse or technician, and would like to join our work experience database and share your experience, we’d love to hear from you. Contact info@futurevets-Scotland.org

We are looking for a modern-day James Herriot – someone with stories to tell, and a love of the veterinary world.  If that’s you, or you know someone who fits that bill, please get in touch with us so we can work together to inspire the next generation.


Be Inspired

The world of veterinary medicine has changed significantly over the last 100 years. Advances in medicines and diagnostic testing mean the tools that vets have available for looking after animals have increased vastly. What hasn’t changed is that being a vet isn’t just about the medicine, it’s also about the place you occupy in people’s lives, sharing in their worries and their joy.  There are a multitude of possible careers with a veterinary medicine degree and we showcase some of them here https://futurevets-scotland.org/career-options-with-a-vet-degree/
