Samantha Smith is currently an MSc animal welfare student at the college. Her undergraduate project, on the effectiveness of hydrotherapy in canines was selected for presentation at the annual animal welfare student conference at Hartpury College this year. She has also been passing on her expertise to FE students as a lecturer at the college.
After completing her National Diploma with a merit, at the college in 1999, Samantha took a couple of years out from education, and then returned to achieve a distinction at HND and then an upper second class honours degree in Veterinary Health Studies at Moulton College.
In 2005 she was awarded the Moulton College Veterinary Award, the achievement of which she is justly proud.
Sam says: The outstanding facilities at Moulton allowed me to gain hands-on experience whilst studying, particularly useful for surgical nursing and radiography during my HND.
She also acknowledges the help from college staff: I received professional support and guidance throughout my studies and expert supervision whilst completing my research project.
I would definitely recommend Moulton College to anyone who aims to pursue a career in animal welfare or veterinary health.
