The Royal Veterinary College’s world-leading academic programs have particular strengths in the biosciences as well as veterinary medicine; it was the first U.K. veterinary school to be accredited by the American Veterinary Medical Association. RVC is not just for pre-vet students: it is strong in other subjects, such as pre-medical, nursing, and allied health interests. A research option supporting the government and veterinary industry is also included. If your academic focus is in the biomedical sciences, and you will be a Junior or Senior during your semester abroad, this might be the program for you.
You'll benefit from faculty with a commitment to academic excellence and a passion for the health and welfare of both animals and humans. You'll be able to do research-intensive projects while attending class modules, lectures, seminars, and lab sessions.
You can socialize with other students at the Student Central in central London, since RVC is a constituent college of the federal University of London system. The Student Central is equipped with recreational facilities, shops, a live entertainment venue, a bar and restaurant.
Experience life both in and out of London on RVC’s two campuses. The city campus, home to the London Bioscience and Innovation Centre, is located in exciting Camden Town, known for its street markets, music venues, Regents Park and the London Zoo. The rural Hawkshead campus, an hour north of London in Hertfordshire, is home to the Queen Mother Hospital for Animals, the largest veterinary teaching hospital in Europe.
University of Queensland (UQ) is one of Australia’s oldest universities and is ranked in the top 50. Its picturesque sandstone courtyard leads into a campus with its own parkland, lakes and sporting grounds - a great setting for the many clubs and societies. You'll find advanced research laboratories, inspiring academics, and a campus culture that is conducive to academic debate and discovery. Outside of the classroom, hundreds of clubs and societies and modern accommodation options will further enhance the academic and cultural learning that takes place while you are abroad.
