Royal (Dick) School of Veterinary Studies


The Royal (Dick) School of Veterinary Studies is a world leader in veterinary education, research, and clinical practice.

Our mission is to benefit society and the environment by educating veterinary surgeons to become members of world-wide public and professional health care teams; and to advance veterinary and comparative medicine through research into disease and disease processes with the goal of improving the health and welfare of both animals and human beings.

We provide outstanding veterinary education at both undergraduate and postgraduate level, using an award winning curriculum, innovative teaching methods, and an interdisciplinary environment, for both our undergraduate and postgraduate students.

Along with the Roslin Institute, which is incorporated with the School, our research spans all aspects of veterinary medicine, from molecules and genes through to animal and human populations.

We aim to make a real difference through research which is directly relevant to the improvement of health and welfare of domestic animal species and the protection of public health.
