If you’re interested in a career that involves working with animals, please feel free to download our factsheet about the various choices open to you and relevant information about each.

School students

We’re often inundated with requests from school students requiring work experience placements, especially during the summer months when we’re at our busiest. Although St George’s Vets has previously invited students from schools across the West Midlands to come for work experience, we have found that we’re unable to invest the proper time and attention that these students deserve. We have therefore made the decision to no longer offer placements to students who are still at school. 

We do however continue to attend career days in support of local schools – schools should email Tracey Wheat to discuss this further

College and university students

We are proud to be a ‘training practice’ and know that work-based learning placements are an essential part of any veterinary student’s qualification process. Practical experience is vital to support theoretical learning and is often a course requirement in order for students to achieve a qualification.

If you’re currently a college or university student, and would like to apply for a work-based learning placement, please send a detailed covering letter and curriculum vitae (either by post or by email) for the attention of Tracey Wheat
