About

The Veterinary Medicine and Science programme at the University of Surrey is research-based, so you’ll spend most of your time developing a research question, conducting original research, analysing your results and writing up your research findings, all under the guidance of your project supervisors.

Overview

Why choose this course

The School of  Veterinary Medicine and Science at the University of Surrey is home to 40 academics with a huge diversity of expertise, ranging from fundamental science to applied clinical research.

The active research community benefits from links with leading research institutions, veterinary practices and the wider veterinary industry. Some of our important strategic partners include The Pirbright Institute, the Animal and Plant Health Agency, Marwell Wildlife and the Surrey Wildlife Trust. We have also established partnerships with leading veterinary practices, including Fitzpatrick Referrals, Liphook Equine Hospital and the Westpoint Veterinary Group. These partnerships offer opportunities for collaborative PhDs, as well as access to unique facilities and resources.

We have a number of specific research strengths, including infectious disease and pathology research and research into inherited animal diseases. Our recently established vHIVE (Veterinary Health Innovation Engine) research centre offers unrivalled opportunities to develop innovative digital and data analytics tools to improve animal health and well-being, and connects with our cutting-edge biomechanics research.
