Introduction to Veterinary Medicine at Cambridge University

VetCam 2011 - Introduction to Veterinary Medicine at Cambridge University

Monday 28th and Tuesday 29th March 2011

Following the successful courses held here in recent years we are holding another two-day residential programme for Year 12 students interested in applying to study Veterinary Medicine at Cambridge University.

The course will take place on Monday 28th and Tuesday 29th March 2011.
There will be an opportunity to visit the pre-clinical and clinical departments to give a taste of the course and meet with staff and current students. Places will be limited to 150 on the basis of first-come, first-served and it would be sensible to encourage only likely A-grade candidates to attend.  The 2011 course fee will be £150 for the all inclusive two-day course.

This information is being sent to almost 4000 schools; however, by necessity the course is limited to 150 participants. It is always over-subscribed therefore we request that you send a maximum of two candidates from your institution.

Those who do attend can collect information for any additional interested candidates and share it with them on their return. There will be no discrimination against any candidates who apply for Veterinary Medicine if they are unable to attend either this course or any other open days.

To avoid disappointment, please stress to them that early booking is essential.

The course can be booked and paid for using a debit or credit card at  If this is not possible please contact us at and we will send you a booking form which can be posted back to us with a cheque. 

Places are limited to 150 and are allocated on a first-come-first-served basis. We will confirm your place BY EMAIL on receipt of payment. Unfortunately we are unable to consider faxed bookings.  We will keep an additional 15 names on a waiting list, in case of any cancellations. If you choose to cancel, a £15 cancellation fee will be charged and the remaining amount refunded to you by cheque.  All bookings received will be acknowledged.
