Veterinary nurse students from the College of West Anglia’s Cambridge campus in Milton took part in a day of punting on the river Cam to mark the close of their induction week.

Twenty-six student veterinary nurses took part in the afternoon event, which was organised in conjunction with Anglia Ruskin University (ARU) and UcWA as part of their induction programmes. It was a time for the students to come together and get to know one another before their programmes of study begin.

The students are entering into their first year of study for the qualifications BSc (Hons) in veterinary nursing with applied animal behaviour or an FdSc in veterinary nursing with applied animal behaviour. The programmes are delivered in partnership between the UcWA and ARU at the Cambridge Campus in Milton, Cambridge.

Other events that took place during their induction week included a tour of the CWA Milton campus to get to grips with the facilities, such as the animal unit, equine yard, equine therapy unit, dog kennels that are all housed there.

Students also spent the morning at ARU’s brand new lab in their science centre to complete their lab inductions.

Another student, Faith Neal said “This is a challenging course however there is a lot of support around us from lecturers and our fellow students. The lectures are enjoyable and engaging which help us to remember the content needed to take us forward in our dream career.”

One student, Harriet Pigney, said: “I had so much fun and it was an amazing experience, I’ll remember always. Luckily, none of us fell in and we are all made it back to dry land safely.”
