The Association of Veterinary Students (AVS) represents veterinary students at all of the nine vet schools in the UK and Ireland. The AVS acts as a bridge between students and other areas of the profession. Executive committee members frequently attend meetings with the BVA, the RCVS and many other professional and student organisations, with the explicit aim of ensuring that student opinion is considered when creating policies that concern students.
Each university elects two representatives (a Junior and Senior Representative, whereby the Junior Representative usually stays on to serve their second term as Senior Representative) who sit on central AVS committee, and all vet students in the UK vote for the President and executive committee.
Carla and Nick are your representative so keep an eye out for them during freshers for all things AVS- from the the infamous sports weekend to the annual Congress which will be hosted right here at RVC!
