Veterinary medicine and science

Animals are a part of all our lives, in ways great and small. The science of animal health and disease, and its link with human health, is at the heart of many issues in the world today and has a global social and economic impact. 

By joining us at Surrey: 

  • You can train to become a qualified vet on our veterinary medicine and science course, which has been designed in collaboration with our partnership of veterinary practices and scientific research institutes. 
  • You’ll have access to our multi-million pound facilities, including our Veterinary Clinical Skills Centre, Veterinary Pathology Centre and Innovation for Health Learning Laboratory. 
  • You’ll learn from lecturers who are registered veterinary practitioners or bioscientists, who bring their experience into the classroom.
  • You’ll be able to study on courses ranked 7th in the UK by the Guardian University Guide 2021 and 9th in the UK by the Complete University Guide 2022.
