The world famous Royal (Dick) School of Veterinary Studies is forging new links with the Far East.
The vet school, based at Easter Bush, between Bilston and Penicuik, has signed a Memorandum of Understanding with the University of Hong Kong’s Li Ka Shing Faculty of Medicine.
This new partnership will provide students from the University of Hong Kong (HKU) with the chance to experience a year of study at Edinburgh University, which was recently ranked 17th in the QS world rankings.
The year’s placement at the Dick Vet will be part of the students’ degree at HKU, which was ranked 26th in the world. The new agreement involves students studying for a Bachelor of Biomedical Sciences degree at HKU.
Students may elect to return to Edinburgh after completion of their HKU degree and complete the remaining three years of the veterinary degree to gain their Bachelor of Veterinary Medicine and Surgery.
