Dick Vet Tops Guardian League Table for Third Year
The Guardian University Guide 2020: league table for veterinary science has been released and the Dick Vet has topped the table once again.
For the third year in a row, the Dick Vet has come top of the Guardian University Guide: league table for veterinary science, demonstrating the strength of its overall offering to students. A 99% student course satisfaction, the highest of all measured schools, was just one of the metrics which kept the school at the top of the table.
The Guardian Guide differentiates itself from other university guides, by aiming 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.
The Dick Vet also placed sixth in the world in the most recent QS World Rankings, which are compiled annually, showing the worldwide reach of the School. The School has accreditation from:
- The American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA)
- The Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons (RCVS)
- The European Association of Establishments for Veterinary Education (EAEVE)
- The Australasian Veterinary Boards Council (AVBC)
- The South African Veterinary Council
Meaning that students can work all over the world with a degree from the School.
