Founded in 1791, the Royal Veterinary College (RVC) is the oldest and largest vet school in the English-speaking world, and a constituent college of the University of London.
The College provides undergraduate and postgraduate courses in veterinary medicine and nursing, and is ranked among the top universities in the UK for biosciences.
It is also a research-led institution that provides support for the veterinary profession through three referral hospitals, one of which – the Queen Mother Hospital for Animals – is Europe's largest small animal referral hospital.
The College was the first UK veterinary school to introduce a clinical skills learning laboratory with virtual reality devices to support student learning. It also offers a comprehensive programme of online and traditional Continuing Professional Development courses for vets and veterinary nurses, as well as a summer school for students.
