Study Weeks

Lantra Level 3 Diploma in Veterinary Nursing (Equine) students must attend seven 3-day study weeks to supplement the theoretical knowledge with practical training and assessment.

Equine Veterinary Nursing study weeks are held on a rotational basis with two induction study weeks held each year in; one in March and one in October.

Students are grouped into cohorts but enrolments are taken at anytime as the distance learning material can be studied while waiting to attend the induction study weeks.

Most sessions are delivered by qualified and highly experienced veterinary nurses who relate the taught subjects to real life situations in the equine clinic.
