The veterinary profession
The Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons (RCVS) is the governing body of the profession in the United Kingdom.
Under the provisions of the Veterinary Surgeons Act of 1966, with certain minor exceptions, only a registered veterinary surgeon is permitted to diagnose and treat the injuries and ailments of animals.
To train to be a veterinary surgeon you will need to go to university and take a veterinary degree.
The universities in the UK offering veterinary degrees approved by the RCVS are Bristol, Cambridge, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Liverpool, London and Nottingham.
The degree courses are five years in length (six years at some schools).
There are also a number of overseas degrees which are approved by RCVS: in Australia, New Zealand and South Africa.
Graduates from North American veterinary schools accredited by the American Veterinary Medical Association can also apply to become members of the RCVS.
Holders of many European degrees are also eligible to register with the RCVS if they are also EU citizens.
Information on European veterinary schools can also be found on the EAEVE (European Association of Establishments for Veterinary Education) website.
Work in the veterinary profession is highly rewarding, but also very demanding. Every veterinary surgeon has an obligation to deal with emergencies in any species at any time.
Anyone contemplating a career in veterinary practice should remember that it is a 24-hour service, 365 days a year.
Ask individual Universities for their current requirements.
