Looking for a valuable gap year experience?

Are you looking for an internship to enable you to stand out from the crowd? If so, then our extensive internship program is for you. With over 12 years experience with worldwide veterinary teaching we are proud to offer one of the most comprehensive internships in Europe and recognised by leading veterinary schools.

 

Our courses are designed to prepare you for your chosen animal related career. Whilst here, you will aquire a wealth of knowledge  and experience to prepare you for university or your first job.

 

Whilst here you will join us by learning about the role of zoo keeping, participate in animal care and participate in our Level 1 AnimalTransactions course.

 

The course will give you an insight into the underlying principles of animal husbandry and training, and you'll get the chance to embed your learning into practical situations.

 

With regular hands on workshops, team building activities and the odd escapee animal, there's a great deal to learn, and many fun team tasks to participate in!
