Destination Vet is a 2-week residential summer school experience, showcasing what it is like to study Veterinary Science at the University of Bristol. Academic sessions are mostly delivered on our Vet School's Langford campus, with additional teaching on our main Bristol campus, plus visits to supplementary locations for further animal-handling and learning experiences.
