I personally am not aware of any political groups here at the RVC, so there is definitely room for improvement here.Report

RVC is in London, there are so many clubs that you probably will never be able to visit them all. Being situated in Camden means some great clubs are right on your door step, we are really close to Koko, Proud, the electric ballroom and many other Camden clubs. But don't let Camden be the only place you visit, London is you playground, its party central!×

There is a good community ethos in the college- becuase everyone is studying very similar courses everyone can relate to the stresses and enjoyments of the course. There is also alot of opportunity to follow specific interests with student run sociteies for pretty much every aspect of the veterinary industry- Business, Hollistic treatment, Farm, Equine, Emergency and critical care... the list goes on.×

Mary Brancker House is the best pre-clinical accommodation; you have more space and are not stuck on campus like with College Grove, which is second best. College Grove allows lie ins and easy access to uni in revision periods, and the fees are better than Mary B; Unite run Mary B. They are horiffic. I wouldn't use intercollegiate halls or any others due to cost, limited mealtimes, shared facilities and noise issues.×
Having more varied societiesReport
Did not have as big a range of clubs/societies as I would have hoped, mostly just sport or vet related.Report

League table rankings
Here's where this university ranks in the three main league tables (where available), which are calculated using a combination of stats that they each weight in different ways. They’re a handy guide but don’t offer the full picture – just because a university is top (or bottom) of the league tables doesn’t mean it is (or isn’t) the right choice for you.
