Dick Vet Tops Guardian University Guide for Fifth Year
The Dick Vet has come top of the Guardian University Guide 2022 league table for veterinary science for the fifth year running.
The Royal (Dick) School of Veterinary Studies has come top of the Guardian University Guide 2022 league table for veterinary science for the fifth year in a row. This fantastic accomplishment was reflected in the high scores in teaching satisfaction and course satisfaction, with the School leading the way in both.
The Guardian Guide differentiates itself from other university guides in that it is aimed specifically at students who are trying to choose a course. It ranks universities and programmes on the areas that are most important to young people, such as how much they will benefit from teaching, the opinion of current students and their chances in the job market after graduation.
Consistent Success in Subject Rankings
The School prides itself as a one-of-a-kind centre of excellence in clinical activity, teaching and research, which is reflected in our consistent success in subject rankings.
Earlier this year we saw the Dick Vet rise in the latest QS World University Rankings by subject to third in the world, a testament to the quality of the staff and students in the Dick Vet community. We also came second in the Complete University Guide subject league table.
