The membership rates for 2017 are as follows:
Full/Associate £82.00 (remember to add your postnomials to the membership form please)
Veterinary Student £30.00
Veterinary Nurse/Student Nurse £30.00
Please note that definition of a full time VET STUDENT is one that has not graduated. Those in further education/internships get student rates at meetings if they first become a full/associate member and are supported by a supervisor’s letter. Thus is not possible for a vet to become a student member of BVZS
