Positions available

Since 1791, the Royal Veterinary College has been pushing forward the scientific frontiers of animal health and medicine. Join us today, and you’ll find a vibrant and growing postgraduate community that provides taught courses and research degrees that cover a wide range of specialist subjects, each one contributing to the improvement of treatment, understanding and welfare of animals in all areas of society, across the world. Led by teams of internationally-renowned scientists, there’s the opportunity to study the conservation and preservation of species in the wild and captivity, understand the economic importance of animals to local and global communities, explore how advances in farming methods can improve animal welfare and productivity, and even equip yourself with state-of-the-art teaching approaches to help you engage the next generation of veterinary scientists, surgeons and nurses. An active research environment is critical to maintaining the relevance and dynamism of postgraduate life, and all of our programmes are underpinned by internationally-recognised research scientists who are engaged in projects that have global partners. We run joint programmes with the Zoological Society of London and the London School of Tropical Hygiene & Medicine and with students enrolled on postgraduate degrees at the RVC will often find themselves embedded in joint research groups, gaining valuable experience from working with scientists from many disciplines. The direct access to research materials, patients and experimental models is unique to the RVC, and our focus on Global Health, Global Welfare means that interactions between these varied research programmes generate one of the most fertile environments in which to train.
