4. University of Cambridge

Ranked fourth in the world for veterinary science this year and boasting a perfect score for employer reputation, the University of Cambridge’s VetMB degree takes six years to complete. From years one to three you’ll study the basic veterinary sciences before learning to apply your knowledge in the final three clinical years. During the vacations of years one or two you’ll also be required to complete at least 12 weeks’ work experience to gain knowledge of animal husbandry.

Your final year is lecture-free, so you’ll work through a series of 40 weeks of clinical rotations in small groups at the Queen's Veterinary School Hospital, providing further opportunities to take on more responsibilities and gain clinical experience in the diagnosis, management and care of patients. During the sixth year you’ll also complete an elective project in a subject of your choice.

We are carrying out an important research project into the development of the nostrils in brachycephalic (short-faced) dog breeds. The breeds that we are looking at in this study are French Bulldogs, English Bulldogs and Pugs. 
If you are a new owner of one of these breeds and would like to help us by taking part in this study, please take a look at the following page:

Congratulations to Chioma Achi

Chioma has just received the University of Cambridge Public Engagement Starter Grant from the Office of External Affairs and Communications.

Farmers play important roles in food-safety and AMR but they are often a neglected and under-targeted group in interventions that concerns the control of antimicrobial resistance. This grant will enable her to engage farmers and provide an opportunity for shared knowledge and interaction that enables them to gain a better understanding of the dangers of AMR hence improving global public health.
