Royal Veterinary College launches exclusive Animal Academy online programme

The Animal Academy is a Widening Participation programme created by the Royal Veterinary College. The Programme is part of a national strategy to eliminate the gaps between the most and least represented groups at university, and ensure everyone has equal access to higher education.

RVC’s Animal Academy is an online programme which supports young people from under-represented backgrounds to reach their goals of studying and working with animals. By signing up to be a member, users have access to exclusive support, advice and events about animal careers, going to university, and of course learning from the RVC’s student and animal experts!

To join the Animal Academy you must be aged 13 or above, and attend a state school in the UK. You will also need to meet some additional criteria such as being the first in your family to go to university, being eligible for Free School Meals, or living in an area with low progression rates to higher education– Follow this link to find out more and see if you might be eligible to sign up.
