Students from Sri Lanka

Introduction

As the UK's oldest and largest veterinary school, the RVC provides students from around the world with an excellent veterinary education. Our Veterinary Medicine degree is recognised by the Sri Lankan Veterinary Council. Graduates from the UK must pass the Sri Lankan Veterinary Council's statutory membership exam to practise as veterinarians in Sri Lanka.

Accreditation by both the RCVS and the AVMA also means that our graduates can practice in the EU, North America and beyond.
