Our Teaching

Our innovative, hands-on, clinically integrated courses are Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons (RCVS) approved.

In the latest (2016) Association of Veterinary Students survey, we were ranked first for several topics. These included career progression preparation, extra mural studies structure and student welfare.

The School has remained top of the The National Student Survey (NSS) since its first graduating cohort in 2011.  The survey ranks us top for overall student satisfaction and also in every other category in veterinary science. NSS Results 2018
