School of Veterinary Medicine and Science


Our modern, purpose-built facilities are based at Sutton Bonington Campus.

With access to a 1000-acre campus, University Dairy Farm and local clinical associates. Used for both teaching and research, our school has technology at its core, with teaching materials accessed online through our Virtual Learning Environment (VLE).

Sutton Bonington Campus also hosts student-led events, societies and sports. There are also great links to the city and our other campuses for you to explore.
