Study in a world-renowned university city
Our Veterinary Science summer programmes are based in Cambridge, the ideal location in which to live, study, and develop your interest in the veterinary sciences. From introductory courses for ages 13-15 to high-level project work for over 16s, we employ expert teaching staff who each cater to their students’ specific ages and levels of experience. Whichever course you study, you’ll discover an environment teeming with academia and a storied history of veterinary excellence – not to mention some of the world’s most prestigious university locations.
Plan ahead for veterinary school
Veterinary Science is a notoriously demanding and competitive field, and successfully applying to your chosen veterinary school is a significant first hurdle. Our Veterinary Science Programme in particular seeks to build a strong foundation of experience that can be drawn upon in a university application, as well as increased confidence in what is required of a veterinary student. For those a little earlier in their academic careers, an ORA course can provide a vital first step into and enthusiasm for this varied and valuable profession. These chances to gain insights and build experience in terms of applications and the direction of your study could prove decisive in your academic career.
Gain hands-on veterinary experience
Not many students realise Veterinary Science is an art as well as a science: as well as a theoretical knowledge of biomedical science and anatomy, medical professionals are trained in finely-honed surgical arts such as the stitching of sutures. Students across our veterinary summer programmes have the opportunity to engage in practical skills workshops, using real training equipment and trying out a variety of tasks from dissection to stitching. This practical experience can be invaluable when applying to veterinary school, giving relevant experience on which students can draw in applications and interviews.
Benefit from subject-specific excursions
ORA students enjoy a variety of excursions during their time with us, and our Veterinary programmes benefit from visits to relevant sites. These trips give students the opportunity to get a sense for the reality of working in the field of veterinary science, whether that be on the front-line of a veterinary centre, in the depths of a research laboratory or even in the annals of history.
Enjoy an ORA summer
The ORA summer experience seeks to forge lasting friendships between dynamic, academically-motivated young people from all over the world. As well as your classmates, you will have the opportunity to meet and socialise with plenty of other students from your campus and age group thanks to our rich extra-curricular programme of workshops, excursions, and formal parties. We never forget that our students are enjoying their summer holidays, so we’re sure to offer plenty of extraordinary opportunities, from falconry and salsa to papercraft and stage combat.
