The Course Structure

Each Veterinary Medicine course is structured slightly differently depending on your pathway; you can learn about the course you received an offer for by watching the videos below.

A Veterinary Medicine degree from the RVC enables you to practice all over the world as we are one of the few veterinary schools that hold accreditations from the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons (RCVS) in the UK, the European Association of Establishments for Veterinary Education (EAEVE) in the EU, and the Council on Education of the American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA) in the USA and Canada for our Bachelor of Veterinary Medicine (BVetMed) programmes. Furthermore, RCVS accreditation ensures RVC veterinary graduates are licensed to work in Ireland, Australia, New Zealand, and South Africa.

Student Feedback

At the RVC, we value our student feedback and are constantly working hard to ensure that you have the best possible experience. In 2023, 94% of RVC students declared themselves satisfied with the quality of their course, the highest level amongst all UK universities.
