Queen's Anniversary Prize

We've been awarded a prestigious Queen’s Anniversary Prize for Higher and Further Education.

The award recognises our contribution to animal welfare, veterinary science, education, research and the economy through our world-class Veterinary Services network.

It also cements SRUC’s credentials in veterinary services as we prepare to open Scotland’s first new vet school in 150 years and continues our journey to gaining taught degree awarding powers.

It is the second time in six years SRUC has received a Queen’s Anniversary Prize, which is the highest form of national recognition open to educational institutions in the UK.

Making your UCAS Application for SRUC's Vet School

We remain confident that the first cohort of BVSci students will start in September 2024, though the uncertainty around the timing of SRUC being awarded taught Degree Awarding Powers means that the programme will not be in UCAS by the 31 January deadline. 

This message will be updated again as soon as we have information that the programme is open for applications.

If you have not already, please also join the vet school mailing list for further updates.
