Find out about our organisation, history and values.

The College of Medicine and Veterinary Medicine priority continues to be the achievement of excellence in education, research and innovation and clinical practice across our range of disciplines.  We have many successes to report, as evidenced by our ability to attract research income. Our continuing success in raising external capital for our estates programme for new and refurbished buildings is further evidence of our achievements, as is the maintenance of one of the highest student experience scores in the University by the Royal (Dick) School of Veterinary Studies. 


Although the external environment remains challenging, it also brings significant opportunities. We have seen growth in EU awards across the University and our recruitment of undergraduate and postgraduate students remains incredibly buoyant. As a College we are in the luxurious position of having incredibly high quality staff and students, ensuring a strong and healthy future as we move forward.
