About

Themes running throughout the  Veterinary Science course from University of Bristol instil the importance of professional skills, animal health and welfare, and veterinary public health, which underpin all veterinary disciplines.

For the first three years you will be based at the main university campus in Clifton, with at least one day a week spent at the clinical campus in Langford. Years four and five are taught at the Langford campus, with an extended, lecture-free, final clinical year.

It is a requirement of the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons that all UK veterinary students undertake 38 weeks of extra-mural studies on farms and in veterinary establishments. Bristol Veterinary School has a dedicated EMS team who can help you find suitable placements.
