Study Veterinary Medicine in the UK

A Veterinary Medicine degree in the UK will give students an excellent base to begin their veterinary career, equipping them with the knowledge and ability to help with the surgical treatment and care of animals. Transferrable skills will also see graduates move into sectors such as food safety, research and pharmaceuticals.

Did you know you can apply to Vet Med school straight out of high school? A typical Veterinary Medicine undergraduate degree lasts five years and modules generally cover anatomy and physiology, animal husbandry, microbiology, public health, parasitology and pathology. The first two years of the programme are classed as the foundation phase, with the third and fourth clinical and fifth professional.

The number of places available to study Veterinary Medicine each year is limited, and the application procedure is extremely competitive.
