Yes but you will need to send us a signed Change of TP/Centre form (see 'Related documents' box - top right) along with a covering letter explaining when you are taking a break. You will no longer be classed as an active student, so you will need to inform the RCVS when you return to training. Your enrolment period will remain the same.
Please send a request in writing to the Veterinary Nursing department. We will then send you a form to complete. This form needs to be signed by your Centre and your TP (if applicable). The fee for 2012 is £68 for a one year extension and requests are granted on a case by case basis.
Please get in touch with your Centre who should be able to help you. If they cannot assist then they will get in touch with us on your behalf to resolve the issue. Please do not contact the RCVS directly.
You can email, fax or write to us to change your personal details, but we cannot change details over the telephone. Please email email@example.com with your new details and name and enrolment number to inform us of a change of address.
When you begin your veterinary nurse training, you are registered by the RCVS at an Approved Centre. If you change employment and move to another practice, it is very important that both the receiving Centre and the RCVS are informed of the change immediately, using the Change of TP/Centre form.
Please ensure that you get this form signed by both your Practice Principal and Head of Centre. You should then post it to the RCVS. Failure to notify the RCVS of changes to your employment and/or approved centre may jeopardise your VN training.
We require a copy of the official documentation of your name change e.g. marriage certificate or deed poll in order to change your name with the RCVS. Please send this, along with a covering letter including your details. Please do not send original documents, as these may become lost in the post.
