Our values


Our BVMSci (Hons) Veterinary Medicine and Science course is accredited by the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons (RCVS), giving our students the academic requirements needed to register as a Veterinary Surgeon, once they graduate. Once registered, they can practise throughout the UK, Channel Islands and the Isle of Man. They can also apply to practise outside of the UK and on successful completion of their course, they’ll be recognised for automatic registration by the Australasian Veterinary Boards Council (AVBC) and the South African Veterinary Council (SAVC). We’re currently working towards accreditation by the European Association of Establishments of Veterinary Education (EAEVE).
