Up to 5 years part-time

Institution code: H12
This degree is only for currently qualified veterinary nurses who wish to ‘top-up’ their vocational qualification to an honours degree. As many potential applicants will be working full or part-time, this degree will be delivered by blended learning - a combination of short (one or two-day) periods of attendance at Harper Adams and distance learning.
Although it is the equivalent of two full-time academic years, students study on a part-time basis and generally achieve their qualifications within four years.

No formal placement time is required for the honours degree, but some time in appropriate practice will be needed to qualify for the Dip AVN
In the early part of the course some modules are core; these are both essential study areas and modules appropriate to higher level education. Optional modules are available in both year levels to allow you to explore special interest areas and give you the opportunity to gain extra skills. The first 120 credits plus an integrated assignment can lead to the RCVS Diploma in Advanced Veterinary Nursing (Dip AVN).
Continuing Professional Development (CPD) is important for all professionals. Advancing your current skills and developing new ones leads to increased job satisfaction and wider career opportunities.
