The Royal Veterinary College (RVC) is the oldest veterinary school in the English-speaking world. The creation of the College, in 1791, marked the establishment of the veterinary profession in Britain. Over the centuries it has continued to lead the way in veterinary practice and science. Our students have always been at the forefront of our endeavours, just as our graduates are at the forefront of veterinary practice, care and science.

The RVC is the only veterinary school in the world to hold the highest accreditation from the AVMA (American Veterinary Medical Association), EAVE (European Association of Establishments of Veterinary Education), RCVS (Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons), AVBC (Australian Veterinary Boards Council Inc.) and the Royal Society of Biology.

The level and breadth of our veterinary and biomedical science research demonstrates the College’s commitment to improving human and animal health and welfare, and the critical role that veterinarians and biological scientists play on the international stage.

A degree from the Royal Veterinary College is recognised internationally as a mark of outstanding quality. It represents hard work and dedication, and identifies graduates as professionals with the highest standards.
