UCD Veterinary Medicine is the only centre for veterinary medical education in Ireland. It enjoys a long and proud tradition, and the school has achieved an international reputation. It provides excellent facilities for the care of animals and offers outstanding training opportunities for veterinary medical and veterinary nursing students.

 

Why UCD Veterinary Medicine?
  • UCD Veterinary Medicine is one of the leading veterinary schools in Europe. As well as having Irish and European accreditation, it has also been granted full accreditation by the American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA), whose educational standards of excellence are recognised worldwide as the ¿gold standard¿ in veterinary education.
  • Our state-of-the-art facility in the Veterinary Sciences Centre, on UCD¿s main Belfield campus, is also home to the UCD Veterinary Hospital. The hospital offers high quality veterinary services for both farm and companion animals, and this caseload provides vital opportunities for our students to complete their clinical training requirements.
  • Our facilities, our staff and the environment of a major research-intensive university allow us to expand the frontiers of knowledge in veterinary research, thus advancing animal health, animal welfare and human health. This research informs our educational programmes to give our students a world-class education, whether they are studying to be veterinary nurses, veterinarians, veterinary specialists, or pursuing advanced research degrees.
