Accreditation

AVMA logoFollowing the first ever international UK accreditation visit to be undertaken conjointly between the American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA) Council on Education, The Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons (RCVS), The European Association of Establishments for Veterinary Education (EAEVE) and The Australasian Veterinary Boards Council (AVBC) in April 2013, the University of Glasgow’s School of Veterinary Medicine has achieved full accreditation for a further period of seven years.  

The visit was undertaken following the protocol agreed with the International Accreditors Working Group, with AVMA, and the Australasian Veterinary Boards Council, at which EAEVE had representatives as observers.  It is anticipated that the next site visit will take place in 2020.

The School’s pass rate in the North American Veterinary Licensing Examination (NAVLE) is currently 84% compared to the pass rate required by the AVMA Council on Education standard for Outcomes Assessment which is 80%.  The NAVLE is a requirement for licensure to practice veterinary medicine in all licensing jurisdictions in North America.
