The University of Central Lancashire has announced it is to open the UK's 11th Veterinary School.
The School will provide foundation, undergraduate and postgraduate programmes in areas including veterinary medicine, bioveterinary science, veterinary physiotherapy and rehabilitation, and veterinary clinical practice and the first intake of UK and international students to veterinary sciences BSc and foundation courses will be in September 2022, whilst Bachelor of Veterinary Medicine and Surgery students are to be expected from 2023.
Professor Cathy Jackson, Executive Dean of the Faculty of Clinical and Biomedical Sciences, said: “Our new veterinary school will be focussed on producing much needed industry ready graduates for our region, particularly as recent figures have highlighted a national shortage of vets and a sector heavily reliant on vets educated in the European Union."
Key features of the school include being taught by an expert team of veterinary and animal science lecturers with a wealth of clinical experience, a commitment to enhancing and promoting good animal welfare and research opportunities to cross collaborate with staff and students from veterinary and human health subjects.

My consultant was very helpful and motivating. She helped me every step of the way, even when the deadline was so close. I feel I could not have done it without her. I'd highly recommend this service to any and all of my many friends interested.
