Vet EMS Reviews Aims


Provide independent reviews of placements to aid students choosing the EMS providers.


Provide an interactive map to aid students on locations of placement providers.


Include extra EMS support and resources to help students prepare for EMS by reading what other have gained from specific placements.



We are a placement review service for vet students to leave feedback and read feedback to aid finding placements.

Finding and choosing placements can be very difficult, but with the aid of our map, local placements can be seen in specific locations.  You can also read what other students have to say about the placement in order to see if it would be suitable for you.

Some Sample Reviews

Very interesting!

This was the police dog training and breeding centre, working with Belgian Shepherd, Dutch Shepherd, German Shepherd, Spaniels, and Labradors. It involved walking them twice daily, cleaning kennels, feeding, observing training (protection work and sniffer dog training), observing whelpings, and providing enrichment to the puppies. It was very interesting and a good experience overall! Communication was lacking when forms needed to be filled in both before and after the placement.

Why choose

So what are Extra-mural studies (EMS)?
All veterinary students must carry out 12 weeks preclinical EMS and 26 weeks clinical EMS.

EMS is vital to support university teaching with hands on experience to increase clinical knowledge. The aim
is for all students to enjoy placements, meet new people and learn new skills.
