Nottingham vet school gains European accreditation

The University of Nottingham’s School of Veterinary Medicine and Science  (SVMS) has received full accreditation from the European Association of Establishments for Veterinary Education (EAEVE).  It is now one of only 10 vet schools across Europe to receive accreditation, and only the second in the UK after the Royal Veterinary College.

The SVMS has demonstrated how responsibility for quality is followed up with actual quality assurance in all areas of its operations from undergraduate and postgraduate admissions, teaching, learning and assessment through to clinical services, continued professional development and research.

Professor Gary England, Dean of school, said “We are very pleased to receive accreditation from EAEVE. This is the a testament to the terrific work conducted by our staff and students at the school.   The student experience we provide has now been validated by both the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons and EAEVE visitations in 2014, and is recognised by our students who put us top in the National Student Survey and Association of Veterinary Students Survey.   The Nottingham vet school also tops the league tables in the Sunday Times/Times and Complete University Guides as well as the Research Assessment Exercise 2008.

Professor England said: “We are all very proud to be part of this Nottingham success story.”
