Student Reviews for Royal Veterinary College University of London

Student satisfaction:
4.6 (based on 597 student reviews)

“One of the biggest positives for me about attending this college was that job fairs are held quite frequently, and employers often attend these events personally. It’s normal for graduates here to end up with a reliable job as soon as they finish their studies. Some have criticised the career advice office for not responding quickly, but in my opinion it’s because the post-graduation employment rates are so high for us.”

“The timetables for the classes can be a bit chaotic at times, with long waits between each lecture on some days. The most important thing is that the education I’ve received here has been of the highest quality, and I’ve made great friends.”
