The Veterinary Sciences programme offered by the University of Bristol is greatly enhanced by its position within the Faculty of Health Sciences. Our research extends from the fundamental to the applied and we collaborate with other research groups in the faculty and beyond, building on a policy of integration of basic science with veterinary activities.
The University recruits both veterinary and basic science students to the postgraduate programme and this may have an impact on subsequent careers. Many of the graduates go on to pursue academic roles in universities, performing a range of research, teaching and clinical roles.
Other graduates have been recruited by research institutes (eg BBSRC), government bodies (eg Defra) or industry (pharmaceutical, animal feed, etc) where they perform research and advisory roles. A number of veterinary graduates now perform specialist clinical activities in veterinary practices.
