If helping animals get better sounds like more fun than helping humans get better, one of the world’s top Veterinary Science universities might be right for you. Fifth-placed University of Liverpool is the only newcomer to the top five compared to last year’s ranking, with the University of California, Davis (UCD) staying top for a third year in a row.
Further down the table, two universities feature in the Veterinary Science rankings for the first time ever. Japan’s University of Tokyo is ranked joint 34th in the world, and Canada’s University of Calgary sneaks into the rankings in 49th place.
