Is it for you?
Fast track for biological science graduates
The Graduate Accelerated Veterinary Medicine programme is open to graduates who already hold (or expect to obtain in the current year) a degree with at least an Upper Second (2:1) class honours in a biological science discipline who would like to use it as the basis for a degree in veterinary medicine.
Suitable disciplines include, but are not limited to; Animal Science, Biochemistry, Biological Sciences, Bioveterinary Science, Physiology, Veterinary Sciences, and Zoology. NB: Students with a non biological science related degree should go to the 5 year BVetMed pages.
A demanding course
Veterinary Medicine is recognised as being a highly demanding programme and there are rigorous degree examinations throughout the programme. A student who fails a degree examination twice is usually required to withdraw from the College.
Where do our students come from?
RVC students come from many different schools, backgrounds and countries all sharing common goals; a strong ambition to succeed in the veterinary field and a desire to improve animal health and welfare.
What sort of person are we looking for?
We welcome applications from individuals with great potential and those with the dedication to commit to the programme and succeed in the veterinary profession. We demand high levels of motivation and, in return, promise a rich and rewarding experience during your time with us.
