The University of Edinburgh Royal (Dick) School of Veterinary Studies has achieved full accreditation for the next seven years.
The national and international reaccreditation follows a detailed review process and major visitation in November 2015, and subsequent consideration by major international councils on education.
The school has been reaccredited by:
- The RCVS
- The American Veterinary Medical Association
- The Australasian Veterinary Boards Council
- The European Association of Establishments for Veterinary Education
Strong educational programme
David Argyle, dean of veterinary medicine and head of school, said: “We are extremely pleased to have been accredited for the next seven years following the visit in late 2015. This recognises our strong educational programme, underpinned by a commitment to an outstanding student experience.
“Our major investment into the quality of our campus has created exceptional facilities for teaching, research and clinical service, and our academic staff share a commitment to excellence in teaching, with a clear focus on the high quality of the learning environment.
“The reports following the visitation were very complimentary and emphasised the high calibre of our students and staff. Our accreditation by these national and international councils is excellent recognition of our commitment to the highest possible standards in veterinary education.”
