A BARNSLEY student has been accepted to study at one of the world’s leading specialist veterinary institutions, the Royal Veterinary College (RVC).

Tom, 19, is due to start his degree in Veterinary Nursing at the RVC in London this September after being predicted to achieve the required course grades, satisfying work experience requirements and passing a rigorous interview process.

He was one of only 90 students accepted - out of over 400 applications.

Tom, a former pupil of Penistone Grammar School, said: “I’m thrilled to have been accepted to study at the RVC and am looking forward to starting in September. My course at Barnsley College has given me a great practical and theoretical grounding in animal management and I think it definitely gave me an edge over some of my fellow candidates who hadn’t done vocational courses.”
