School of Veterinary Medicine and Science

The School of Veterinary Medicine and Science was launched in 2006, in new purpose-built facilities ─ a landmark as the UK's first new Vet School since the 1950s. 

School of Biosciences

Originally established in the 1900s as an agricultural college, the School has grown radically into today's internationally renowned centre for cutting edge research in five Divisions:

  • Animal Sciences
  • Food Sciences
  • Plant and Crop Sciences
  • Nutritional Sciences
  • Agricultural and Environmental Sciences


The campus enjoys a mature landscaped setting including an arboretum and a lime avenue, originally planted to commemorate those lost in the First World War and said to have a 'Queen's Shilling' buried under every tree.


A new Masterplan for the campus was commissioned in 2008 and will provide a framework for the future development of the campus.  As part of this, two new teaching and research buildings opened in 2011: Gateway Building and BioEnergy and Brewing Science Building.

Sutton Bonington is just a 25 minute car journey from the University Park Campus and a shuttle-bus service runs between the two campuses regularly during the day.
