295 courses that you can study to become a vet

At least 294 veterinary medicine courses are delivered outside of Ireland that enable graduates to register with the VCI (Veterinary Council of Ireland).

In response to That’s Farming’s request for information, the body provided this publication with a list of VCI recognised qualifications in veterinary medicine.

It noted that University College Dublin (UCD) delivers the only veterinary medicine programme in Ireland.

Recognised programmes of veterinary medicine are delivered in English by:

  • Budapest University of Veterinary Science;
  • Hungary, Kosice University;
  • Slovakia;
  • Warsaw Agricultural University, Poland.

VCI-recognised UK programmes of veterinary medicine, which enable access to the Register of Veterinary Practitioners, include:

  • Bristol University;
  • Edinburgh University;
  • Glasgow University;
  • Liverpool University;
  • Nottingham University;
  • University of Cambridge;
  • University of London;
  • University of Surrey.

Programmes of Veterinary Medicine are usually delivered over a 5-year period.

Veterinary Medicine Courses 

Routes of access to the VCI Register of Veterinary Practitioners

A spokesperson for the council told That’s Farming editor, Catherina Cunnane:

“In order to be registered on the Register of Veterinary Practitioners, you must hold a qualification in veterinary medicine that is recognised for the purpose of registration by the Veterinary Council.”

“Qualifications in veterinary medicine that are not recognised by the Veterinary Council for the purpose of registration do not entitle a person to be registered to practice in the state.”

The below categories of qualifications may be automatically recognised by the Veterinary Council for the purpose of registration:

  1. i) Qualifications awarded by universities in Ireland that are accredited by the Veterinary Council of Ireland;
  2. ii) Qualifications awarded in EU member States listed in Annex V point 5.4.2 of Directive 2005/36/EC;

iii) Qualifications awarded by universities that hold full accreditation/approval status with the European Association of Establishments for Veterinary Education (EAEVE);

  1. iv) Qualifications awarded by universities in the United Kingdom that are accredited by the Royal college of Veterinary Surgeons (RCVS);
  2. v) Qualifications awarded after September 20th, 2007 by universities accredited by the American Veterinary Medicine Association (AVMA), where the applicant can provide evidence of a passing score in the North American Veterinary Licensing Examination (NAVLE).
