We have been delivering exceptional training in veterinary medicine for almost 230 years, and our clinical facilities are second-to-none.

You will benefit from an outstanding learning environment where you will gain practical experience in our on-campus hospitals, practices and farm. You will graduate ready to make a real difference in the veterinary profession.

Our Veterinary medicine programmes are a strand-based that follows a ‘spiral’ curriculum. This means that key concepts are presented repeatedly to you as you progress through the course, at deepening levels of complexity and in different contexts. The progression of knowledge and understanding from preclinical basic concepts to clinical knowledge and reasoning skills is achieved by revisits to each strand at different stages of the course.

The RVC is one of the few veterinary schools in the world that holds 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. Furthermore, RCVS accreditation ensures RVC veterinary graduates are licensed to work in Ireland, Australia and New Zealand, as well as South Africa.
