Harper and Keele Veterinary School launched in 2020 with our first cohort of students. Combining the extensive resources and excellence in teaching at Harper Adams and Keele universities, has created a unique environment for the Vet School to grow and thrive.
We are an open and friendly community aiming to attract innovative and dedicated students from the widest range of backgrounds. Our student-centred approach ensures that, whatever your route to vet school, we will help you to develop as a confident and resilient vet ready to embrace the hugely varied and rapidly evolving career opportunities open to you. Both universities pride themselves on their student experience and offer beautiful campuses and a warm welcome.
Students at the Vet School uniquely benefit from two highly successful universities. Harper Adams has a long-standing reputation in animal sciences (agriculture, bio-veterinary science, vet nursing and vet physiotherapy), with access to on-campus farms and extensive companion animal facilities with more than 3000 animals on site. Keele has strengths in health and life sciences, experience of establishing a leading UK medical school and significant recent investment in facilities such as state-of-the-art teaching laboratories. A new veterinary building on each campus coupled with our close relationships with veterinary practices and related businesses, has created an exceptionally rich and authentic environment for veterinary education and research.
Students study a five-year programme leading to a Bachelor of Veterinary Medicine and Surgery degree.
