Canterbury College’s new virtual vet clinic

Canterbury College’s impressive new Veterinary Nursing laboratory has been nominated for a top design award.

The state-of-the-art lab is in the running to win an S-Lab award for laboratory design.

The awarding body was impressed by its top-range facilities that include a mock surgical theatre, X-Ray machinery and an incubator.

The design allows Veterinary Nursing and Animal Management students to experience conditions of working in a practicing veterinary lab.

Alan Carver, the college’s capital projects manager, said: “We’re proud to be shortlisted for the award because it recognises the hard work that went into making this a first-class teaching facility. We worked closely with our Veterinary Nursing and Animal Care staff who all have industry experience, throughout the design process.
