    Organisational background

    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.

    Our Vision:

    A Veterinary School of international reputation, recognised for excellence in teaching and learning, clinical training and for the delivery of world-class research that positively impacts animal health and welfare, to promote a healthy society.

    Our Mission:

    To create and sustain a culture in the School that nurtures success and promotes excellence in research and teaching.

    To continue to innovate, develop, and deliver undergraduate and postgraduate programs that are recognised as world-class and equip graduates with the skills necessary to build successful and far-reaching careers in which they continue to develop as global citizens, adding value to their local, national and international communities.

    To promote and create opportunities that will positively impact diversity, in all its forms, within the student body and the professions.

  • Company values

    Curious, Creative and Collaborative – developing our teaching programmes in ways that optimise student learning using innovative and evidence-based approaches.

    Listening and Learning – finding out from our students and staff what works, and what we can do differently.

    Inclusive and Caring – with a strong focus on both student and staff wellbeing, and a drive to increase diversity within our student cohorts.

  • What makes your organization a great place to work?

    Our community:

    Bristol Vet School is a friendly and supportive community of staff and students. Accrediting bodies have commended the enthusiasm of staff and the engagement of our students. Staff get to know one another, sharing and collaborating across the educational and research aspects of the work of the School.

    Our approach to education:

    We are student-focused and innovative, with initiatives such as our internationally-renowned Clinical Skills Lab, extensive use of case-based learning, our amazing Clinical Demonstrator team (to enhance the primary care focus of our teaching throughout the curriculum) and international educational research collaborations.

    Our location:

    Nestled in the Mendip Hills (an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty), there are fabulous opportunities for outdoor pursuits on our doorstep, yet the buzz of Bristol city centre is a short bus ride away.
