As well as a strong commitment to teaching and learning, the School recognises the need to provide good student support services.
The standard five-year programme is suitable for school leavers or graduates of unrelated disciplines.
We also offer a Graduate Entry Programme for anyone with a relevant first degree. This lets you qualify as a veterinary surgeon after four years of study.
Our undergraduate courses are accredited by:
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 2011/12, 81% of our students who sat the North American Veterinary Licensing Examination (NAVLE) achieved a pass. A total of 26 of the 32 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.
The School is committed to a dedicated programme in the curriculum in which undergraduates get involved directly in research; we call this the Research Track. This programme aims to encourage undergraduates to identify and develop career paths that are alternative to general practice. Students can choose to engage at various stages of their undergraduate studies - follow the below link to look at the options and how these fit in with the BVM&S programme.
