Events & Workshops
Our workshops aim to introduce school students to the field of veterinary medicine, veterinary nursing and bioveterinary science through a range of exciting group activities. A career working with animals is often overlooked and we hope by the end of the session students are better informed on what a career with animals looks like! This project aims to target school students who come from ethnically diverse backgrounds, with the hope of diversifying veterinary and animal-related sciences.
WHAT PEOPLE SAY
Year 10 Student

Year 5 Teacher
"I had an amazing time at this session which was both informative and inspirational for our young black pupils. It would be great to see this expanded to other boroughs to help our younger generation realise their potential and empower them with knowledge to further themselves. Thank you"
"It’s also great to see students now start to push the fight for diversity and inclusivity in animal related fields such as [Animal Aspirations] at the [Royal Veterinary College]. This is a really great group."
In addition to student-led workshops, we believe career fairs are an excellent opportunity to interact with students, teachers and parents and discuss the different animal-related career paths that exist. You would be surprised by how diverse a career working with animals can be - you don’t just have to be a vet!
We aim to provide a wide range of different activities that students can participate in. We are also proud to be partnered with the Royal Veterinary College which offers amazing events and opportunities throughout the year such as Sutton Trust Summer School and Teen Vet Club.
