Seneca College has signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) with the Royal Veterinary College (RVC) in the United Kingdom, to allow Seneca veterinary technician (VTE) students to study RVC’s bachelor of veterinary medicine course.
The partnership between the two schools will also involve annual visits by RVC staff to Seneca’s King Campus to give talks to VTE students on the opportunities the pathways offer.
“This is an excellent opportunity for students in our veterinary tech program to further explore their passion at a world-class leader in veterinary science and research,” says Seneca president, David Agnew.
Talks of a partnership came about after Seneca administration noticed that over the last few years several of their alumni had continued their studies at the RVC.
“We have been developing this partnership with Seneca since 2017, and it is great to see it come together so successfully,” says RVC principal, Stuart Reid. “We look forward to continued collaboration between our organizations to the benefit of our students and animal health.”
The two schools will also be exploring the prospect of creating a bridging program to further support Seneca students continuing their studies at the RVC.
