Open days / VetCam

A good way to find out more about Cambridge and the veterinary medicine course is to come to and meet us at an Open Day. There are Open Days held every July and the annual two-day VetCam event for year 12 students who are interested in studying veterinary medicine. However, students do not have to attend an open day or residential course at Cambridge or any other vet school to apply to us. Students may find these events informative, helpful and enjoyable, but they will not increase your chances of gaining a place at Cambridge. No one should feel that they must spend large amounts of money on courses to improve their chances of admission to Cambridge, as this is not the case.

VetCam: Introduction to Veterinary Science at Cambridge University

Wednesday 6th, Thursday 7th and Friday 8th April 2016 - Fully Booked!

This is a two and a half day residential course for year 11 and 12 students. The details of how to apply for this course were sent to all schools and sixth form colleges in the UK just after Christmas by email.  The VetCam event is intended to provide an insight into both the preclinical and clinical courses and will include a mix of lectures, discussions, demonstrations and tours with lots of contact and discussion time with current students and staff.

The course costs £230* but covers all costs, including accommodation, meals and transport whilst in Cambridge. To book a place, please go to
