Veterinary Science (subject to approval)

Scotland`s Rural College (SRUC)


Aberdeen Campus


This BVSci programme has been designed to provide a new distributed model of veterinary education. The programme is tailored to address societal needs and promote graduate resilience through ‘real-world’ clinical training with partner practices operating in all areas within the veterinary profession.

You will learn alongside animal industry related professionals so that you will become advocates of the development of economically viable, appropriately skilled, Veterinary Teams. Within these teams you will be better placed to support each other in your professional careers. By developing a strong team ethos throughout the curriculum, you will be better able to negotiate the professions that you will be an integral part of.

The programme uses a distributed model to deliver a lecture-free final year based with our partners in industry and clinical practice. This model will enable you to reinforce and consolidate your theoretical learning with the invaluable practical experience that real world settings provide. You will find that this approach smooths the transition to the workplace and acts as a pathway to employment by connecting you with potential employers.
