These pages give information to both prospective and current students about the Veterinary Medicine course at Cambridge

Welcome to our webpages about the Veterinary Sciences Tripos (VetST).


The VetST is the pre-clinical course taken by students wishing to become Vets over their years 1 and 2. It is overseen by the Faculty of Biology.

Please be aware that neither preclinical nor clinical veterinary medicine can be studied remotely, with the exception of the third year (Part II), which will depend on the Tripos chosen to study.. If students wish to leave Cambridge for medical reasons, they need to apply for intermission.
