About our Study Weeks
Study Weeks are held at TOCES in Suffolk; they include lectures and practical sessions covering the relevant course modules and may include visits to, and lectures by professional staff of, the Animal Health Trust, The Royal Veterinary College, Rossdales Equine Hospital, the National Stud and Cambridge University Veterinary School.
We enjoy meeting our students and students always say they enjoy meeting the TOCES team. Most importantly, students enjoy meeting each other – it is helpful to realise you are not the only person worrying about how much (or how little) work you have done! As well as learning a lot, you will make new friends!
We do know however that some students find the Study Week element daunting – the ‘college’ environment sounds stuffy and some students worry that everyone else will be far more knowledgeable. Please do not worry – the atmosphere is always friendly and supportive.
Can't find the course you want? Just call us, we're here to help.
