uws student, uws graduate student seek to teach and study abroad in UK article uWS students, uWS graduates, uCS graduates, UWS graduates and UWS students from across the world are seeking to study and teach in the UK.
The UWS School of Veterinary Science, located in the heart of London, is a research and teaching institution which offers a full range of veterinary sciences and the UWS Bachelor of Veterinary Sciences.
The first batch of veterinary students, who were initially scheduled to commence this month, are expected to commence their course of study in early 2019.
UWS undergraduate student, Ben Hargreaves, who is studying in the United States, said he was inspired to start his UWS career because he had no idea what he would be doing for the rest of his life.
“I had a lot of interest in veterinary research, but it wasn’t until I started working with dogs and cats that I realised how many different disciplines there are in veterinary medicine and veterinary medicine is an incredibly broad subject area,” Mr Hargraves said.
“I am looking forward to taking on the next challenge in the veterinary field in the coming year and helping to further our understanding of the natural world.”
UWS veterinary student, Tania Kastigar, said the Uws program was ideal for her as she wanted to learn more about veterinary medicine, but also hoped to get a foot in the door in the future.
“Being a veterinary student and an undergraduate student at the same time, I’ve got a lot in common with a lot the people in my family,” Ms Kastigsar said.
“My family is from the UK and we have a lot to offer, so it was something I really wanted to do for the benefit of my family and myself.”
Uws student Ben Haggs said his Uws programme had allowed him to pursue an interest in the world of veterinary medicine that he had not pursued before.
“It’s the best thing I’ve done so far and it’s helped me realise that I really do have a passion for the world’s animals,” Mr Jagger said.UWS undergraduate, Tanya Voss said she had a big idea in mind when she decided to enrol in veterinary school.
“After graduating from UWS, I had a real good idea in my head that I wanted to be a vet and that I would eventually be teaching and studying in veterinary schools around the world,” Ms Voss explained.
“That’s why I thought I’d take the first year of my veterinary studies in the U.S. and I am really excited to be able to be part of that process and have that opportunity to travel overseas and take a year-long journey to be closer to what I have always wanted to pursue.”UWS veterinary graduate, Rianne Withers, said her UWS degree would provide her with the opportunity to work in animal welfare in Australia and Europe.
“The idea of working in Australia with the UK’s Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons has always been very appealing to me, but now that I’m in veterinary science, I think that the opportunity is a really great one to go back to,” Ms Witherses said.
Dr Witherss said she wanted the opportunity for her to learn about the animal welfare and ethical issues surrounding veterinary work in Australia, but was also looking forward for the opportunity in Europe.
She said her main focus was working in veterinary clinics, so her veterinary students would be able apply their expertise in the field and work in areas like veterinary pathology.
“Having worked in veterinary pathology and in veterinary hospitals, I know that there are really ethical issues in the industry and that there’s no place for animals to be put in the same place as humans,” Dr WitherS said.
In total, about 40 veterinary students have applied to enrol with UWS.
They will commence their veterinary studies this year, but UWS is also holding a special application for students who want to work at veterinary schools overseas.
“We’re currently working to get students to apply online so we can see who the best candidates are in the next two to three years,” UWS Senior Veterinary Officer, Professor Ian Walker, said.
