Our undergraduate courses are accredited by:

  • The European Association of Establishments for Veterinary Education (EAEVE)

The Royal (Dick) School of Veterinary Studies has Full Accreditation from AVMA. The last evaluation was in 2008, the next evaluation is scheduled for 2015.

In 2013, 91% of our students who sat the North American Veterinary Licensing Examination (NAVLE) achieved a pass. A total of 51 of the 56 candidates.

The degree of Bachelor of Veterinary Medicine and Surgery (BVM&S) is the equivalent of the North American Doctor of Veterinary Medicine (DVM) and has the same standing worldwide.

In October 2008 we signed an International Memorandum of Understanding with our sister veterinary college at Colorado State University.

Research

Lab

Our research spans all aspects of veterinary medicine, from molecules and genes through to animal and human populations.

We aim to make a real difference through research which is directly relevant to the improvement of health and welfare of domestic animal species and the protection of public health.

Clinical excellence

Our clinical services - Hospital for Small Animals, Small Animal Practice, Equine and Large Animal Practice - are among the most influential centres for clinical care in the UK, providing our students and researchers with the best possible training environment.
