Veterinary Technology

We are highly experienced veterinary nurses and technologists who play a vital role in delivering modern animal care. We are forward thinking researchers and progressive educators, working in a close-knit community where every individual counts.  

Our students gain hands-on experience from industry practitioners who advocate for our profession. Underpinned by our research, our contemporary curriculum allows students to learn in a multi-disciplinary environment to support the delivery of a future focused and collaborative workforce.
