Pat on the back for Rotherham College student

A student at Rotherham College of Arts and Technology has shown true animal instinct after winning a place at one of England’s top veterinary schools.

Stefanie Wallace (20), who finishes her BTEC Level 3, Animal Management course in June, has been accepted to study at the state-of-the-art School of Veterinary Medicine and Science through the University of Nottingham.

She said: “The course at college has been fantastic and the tutors have been so supportive by giving me the confidence to go and get the career of my dreams. I will miss it here, especially all the animals I have grown attached to.”

Her tutor, Andrew Jonas, said: “She has put a huge amount of hard work in to her studies and has gained work experience with over 18 different animal-based placements, so she really deserves the best. I’m very proud of her.”

When asked which animal she was going to miss the most at the college, Stefanie said: “Luna the cow is definitely my favourite.

“She is so gentle and loves all the attention from the students, I will miss her.”
