Bristol Vet School, led by Head of School Professor Tim Parkin, aspires to deliver world-class excellence in veterinary teaching, research, and clinical service.
We work closely with the University’s School of Biochemistry, School of Physiology, Pharmacology & Neuroscience, and School of Anatomy, as well as Bristol Zoo to deliver our Bachelor of Veterinary Sciences (BVSc) programs, a BSc in Veterinary Nursing and Companion Animal Behaviour, and a taught Masters in Global Wildlife Health and Conservation.
Our clinical services are provided by Langford Vets, and we also work with external partners to ensure a broad range of clinical experiences for our students.
Our School’s academic and support staff structures comprise a senior management team supported by a central support unit (finance, technical, personnel, administration, and student services). Academic staff are part of relevant clinical and teaching teams. Current staff numbers are approximately 100 academic staff alongside around 70 support staff.
We are located on a rural campus at Langford, 14 miles south of Bristol. The Langford estate, together with its dairy farm (Wyndhurst), occupies 255 acres. The area is in the heart of the Mendip hills but with access to theatres, restaurants and cultural attractions in Bristol, Bath and Wells. The environs offer outdoor activities such as walking, mountain-biking, rock-climbing, caving, riding, and sailing. There is a broad range of housing and good schools within easy driving distance of the campus.
