Surrey Vet School receives international accreditation

The University of Surrey's School of Veterinary Medicine has been evaluated and accredited by the influential European Association of Establishments for Veterinary Education (EAEVE).  

This coveted stamp of approval confirms that Surrey's Vet School meets the highest standards in veterinary education in Europe thanks to its world-class teaching and facilities.  

Surrey's Vet School was opened in 2015 by Queen Elizabeth, who was accompanied by her husband, Prince Philip, and the University's Chancellor, the Duke of Kent. It's one of the country's newest vet schools, offering a modern and innovative curriculum designed to integrate scientific and clinical knowledge, preparing students for the demands of contemporary veterinary practice. 

EAEVE accreditation is internationally recognised and seen as a marker of excellence. The rigorous accreditation process drives continuous improvement in educational practices. The accreditation also promotes student mobility, offering broader career opportunities. Graduates from accredited schools are preferred by employers, and accreditation ensures compliance with regulatory standards.
