|Event Name||RVC Open House (campus tour)|

RVC’s Open House events are designed to allow prospective student, parents, teachers and careers advisors the chance to see one or both campuses on the same day.
The booking form will ask you to choose whether you want to tour both or just one of the campuses. Then you will need to book a time slot for the talk and/or tour at your first campus (if you are visiting both campuses you don't need to book a time for your second campus tour). You will be able to park at the Hawkshead Campus, but there is no parking available at Camden. Trains operate a service between King’s Cross and Potters Bar throughout the day and RVC will provide a free shuttle bus at Potters Bar station to take you to and from the Hawkshead campus. We recommend you allow 1½- 2 hours to travel between each campus for your tour.
RVC recommends visiting both campuses if you are interested in Veterinary Medicine courses or just Hawkshead if you are considering studying for Veterinary Nursing (there is no teaching for this course in Camden). For the Biological Sciences courses, most of the teaching takes place in Camden, but the BSc Animal Behaviour, Welfare and Ethics course is based at Hawkshead for the final year. Postgraduate courses are mainly based at Camden, but many also share teaching with other establishments e.g. ZSL London and LSHTM.
Note: These are NOT Open Days. You will not have an opportunity to speak to RVC academic staff, however, Admissions Staff will be on hand to answer any questions and the tours will be led by current students - so that you can hear what it is like to study on RVC's programmes. Unfortunately, RVC are not able to conduct individual tours, these are the only dates on which tours of either campus are available (unless you are travelling from overseas, in which case RVC will do its best to accommodate tour requests).
