Harper Adams and Keele University are in exploratory talks to host the school and certify students with a Bachelor of Veterinary Sciences (BVSc) degree at the end of the five-year course.

 

Professor Peter Mills, Harper Adams University deputy vice-chancellor, said the course would be a benefit to the industry.

 

He said: “This initiative will complement our core subjects in agriculture, not least in the care and treatment of agricultural livestock.

 

Opportunity

“It will also open up new avenues for livestock research, advanced veterinary training and knowledge exchange, ultimately to the benefit of the farming sector.”

 

Students will be accredited by the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons to offer the chance for graduates to register and practice as a vet when awarded their degree.

 

The school also hopes to offer new opportunities to young people who may have not previously considered a career as a vet.

 

Pro vice-chancellor and executive dean of natural sciences at Keele University, Professor Jonathan Wastling, added: “State of the art laboratories available on the Keele campus will be complemented by world-class large and small animal facilities provided by Harper Adams, offering the perfect environment for veterinary students.”
