We've been helping students find the right postgraduate course for over a decade.
The Royal (Dick) School of Veterinary Studies is a world leader in veterinary education and research. Established in 1823, we still lead the way in research. We were ranked 11th in the world for Veterinary Science in the QS World University Rankings 2016 and in the most recent Research Excellence Framework (REF) 2014 were ranked first in the UK for Veterinary Research.
We are the largest concentration of animal scientists in Europe, possibly the world. Our School includes the newly refurbished Roslin Institute, where we investigate animal diseases and develop sustainable animal production, the Moredun Research Institute, the Scottish Agricultural College and the Easter Bush Research Consortium.
We offer our postgraduate students a dynamic experience. Here you will find world-class research, co-location of research centres to facilitate interdisciplinarity, state-of-the-art facilities, MRC-funded centres, close collaboration with NHS hospitals, all major imaging technologies, clinical trials support and commercialisation training and opportunities.
