The Royal Veterinary College is the oldest vet school in the UK, and is part of the University of London. The RVC enjoys a prestigious reputation throughout the world, and the expertise of our staff is internationally recognised. We received the maximum score of 24 out of 24 in an assessment of teaching standards by the Quality Assurance Agency in 2003. The veterinary medicine degree is accredited by the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons, and the RVC was the first UK veterinary school to be accredited by the American Veterinary Medical Association. Our graduates benefit from the ability to practice throughout both the UK and the USA, and further afield. The accreditation of the BSc Bioveterinary Science course by the Society of Biology has recognised the valuable skills and experiences these students go onto offer to employers within the science sector. Further details are available from the Society of Biology.

The RVC is committed to creating employable graduates that meet the needs of the veterinary sector and beyond. Our commitment to creating leaders of the future does not stop at helping our graduates into employment; We recognise that finding the right role, offering professional development and job satisfaction, is just as important for all our graduates and their employers. So, whether you are an alumnus of the RVC who appreciates the opportunity to maintain this link with the College and is well aware of the capabilities and skills of our graduates, or an employer who is learning about us for the first time, thank you!

A lot of our graduates and specialist postgraduates are interested in veterinary practice including companion, equine, exotic and farm roles but some seek alternative options. Such other areas can include roles involving work with animals, animal charities, related government agencies, veterinary pathology, veterinary practice management and zoo-keeping. Additionally, scientific roles in industry, academia and publishing are often of interest. 

If you have any questions about the vacancy promotion process, or would like to engage our students/graduates further, please contact the RVC Careers Service.
