School of Veterinary Science Student Placement Support

Placements are vital to student learning and their preparation for veterinary practice. Sadly, financial pressures sometimes stand in the way of students getting the most from their placement experience.

Giving to support students in placement means removing financial barriers so that tomorrow’s veterinarians can focus on their studies, their learning and on one day giving back to the communities they will live and practice in.

Placement poverty is real – and is often heightened when students do practicums in rural and regional communities. The realities of financial hardship can make students reluctant to step too far outside their comfort zone or too far from home.

With your help, students can stop worrying about making ends meet and put their minds to becoming the very best veterinarians they can be, exploring both city and country pathways.
