Welcome to Aberystwyth School of Veterinary Science - the first of its kind and the only Veterinary School in Wales.

As someone who is passionate about veterinary training and the role the veterinary profession can play in society, not only in Wales but globally, I warmly invite you to consider studying with us.

Our jointly hosted Bachelor of Veterinary Science (BVSc) degree offers you a unique opportunity to train at two world-leading scientific and educational institutions: the Royal Veterinary College (RVC) and Aberystwyth University.

Established in 1872, Aberystwyth University has been delivering innovative research in the Agriculture, Animal and Biological Sciences for 150 years.

Established in 1791, the RVC is the UK’s largest and longest established independent veterinary school and is a member institution of the University of London.

The RVC is ranked as the world’s number one veterinary school in the QS World University Rankings by subject.

Lecturers at Aberystwyth University and the RVC are not only world-class researchers and clinicians who are passionate about their field; they are highly qualified teaching professionals.

Our course has been designed to train students to work optimally with many types of animals, in a range of employment settings, and to provide high quality theoretical and practical teaching.

If Veterinary Science is your passion, why not join us on an Open Day to meet our staff and view our excellent teaching and research facilities. You will discover what makes Aberystwyth such an incredible place to live and learn.
