Bristol is a world-class university in a creative and dynamic city that offers a great student experience. While studying on the BVSc programme, you can combine this outstanding city experience with time in the rural setting of the Langford campus, where you will be taught in modern clinical facilities that include new small-animal and equine hospitals, and a recently refurbished dairy farm. Training in farm animal science, animal welfare and veterinary public health is one of Bristol's strengths and reflects the importance of vets to the Global and One Health agendas. The acquisition of the underpinning science allows Bristol graduates to be problem solvers, innovators and entrepreneurs. Up to 20 per cent of Bristol veterinary students take the opportunity to intercalate into another science course between years three and four. However, it is the friendly and supportive atmosphere of the veterinary school community at Bristol that students rate most highly.
