Located in London, the Royal Veterinary College, University of London is near Camden Town and the new St. Pancras station and is also close to Bloomsbury. The Royal Veterinary College is an independent veterinary college with a strong tradition of heritage and innovation. Founded in 1791, RVC became a full part of the University of London in 1949. Here you will find individuals with an uncanny commitment to academic excellence and a passion for the health and welfare of animals and humans.

As a support to the veterinary and medical professions and a tangible outcome to the College's vision to improve animal health and promote public health, RVC has three animal hospitals treating over 20,000 patients each year. The Queen Mother Hospital is Europe's largest referral hospital for small animals.

RVC features two campuses:

  • Camden Campus:  Camden is the main campus of RVC that is within easy walking distance of King’s Cross, St. Pancras International and Euston train stations. It houses state-of-the-art facilities that includes an award-winning social learning space, a Learning Resources Centre, and an Anatomy museum and dissection room.
  • Hawkshead Campus:  The Hawkshead campus, the location for many large animal research activities, is located in Hertfordshire which is a 30-minute train journey from Central London. This campus has state-of-the-art facilities that include the Centre for Emerging and Endemic Diseases, a Structure & Motion Laboratory, Pathology facilities, and an Equine Hospital.

Students whose projects are based at the Hawkshead campus will be subsidized as the Hawkshead campus is outside the expected travel zones for this program. Ask your Program Manager for further details.
