Congratulations on being offered a place on our Gateway course!

We are thrilled that you're considering studying one of our Veterinary Medicine courses. The RVC has been a pioneer in delivering exceptional training in veterinary medicine for over 232 years. If you accept your offer to study Gateway Veterinary Medicine at the RVC, you will benefit from an outstanding learning environment with additional time and attention that will enable you to thrive as a vet.

Welcome from your Course Director

What is Gateway?

During the course, you will begin with a preparatory year, year 0, designed to equip you with the knowledge and skills to study veterinary medicine before proceeding to BVetMed year 1.

Over the years, our Gateway course has proven highly successful. With an additional year of study compared to the BVetMed course, many Gateway graduates find that this extra time to refine their skills positively influences their abilities to perform as highly confident and passionate vets.
