The BVZS supports students in lots of different ways:

Membership benefits

Student members of BVZS get access to the members only area of our website. This includes access to conference past proceedings, webinar recordings, EMS list, and our dedicated student page full of useful links and resources.


Annual conference

Student members receive a heavily discounted rate to attend BVZS conferences. Since 2018 we have also included a dedicated student stream at our annual conference. Past student streams have included careers advice, back to basics sessions, and mental health and wellbeing sessions. 

Every year we give away 6 free places to our conference for undergraduate student members, and veterinary zoological society committee members are eligible to apply to be student stewards. 

Students are encouraged to submit both presentations and posters to the annual conference, for which we hold a competition every year. The winners receive free conference attendance the following year.
