New Veterinary Education Centre for Aberystwyth students
"Opening the School and the new facilities has been incredibly exciting for all of us" - Professor Darrell Abernathy, Head of Aberystwyth's School of Veterinary Science.

Images of the facilities have been released for the first time. 

The first images of Aberystwyth University's School of Veterinary Science have been released.

Wales' only School of Veterinary Science, the school welcomed its first cohort of students in September 2021.

Located on Aberystwyth University's Penglais campus, the new Veterinary Education Centre features brand new anatomy and study facilities, and was an investment of over £2 million.

Professor Darrell Abernathy, Head of Aberystwyth University's School of Veterinary Science commented on the new facilities: “The commitment of staff and students in our first year has been excellent.

“Opening the School and the new facilities has been incredibly exciting for all of us. The efforts and support of so many people and organisations has helped realise this – thanks ever so much to them all.

“After so much hard work by staff at both Aberystwyth University and the Royal Veterinary College in preparing for the start of the course, it’s a great feeling for us all to see our students are now here studying.

“They are benefitting enormously from the skills of the new staff team and the significant investment in the new facilities.”

Aberystwyth's new veterinary degree, a collaboration with the Royal Veterinary College (RVC), is a five year course in which students will spend two years at Aberystwyth University, and three years at the RVC's Hawkshead campus in Hertfordshire.

A new avian influenza prevention zone has been declared in North Yorkshire following the identification of H5N1 avian influenza at a number of premises.

The requirement means all bird keepers in Harrogate, Hambleton and Richmondshire are now legally required to keep their birds indoors and follow strict biosecurity measures.

Several other cases of H5N1 avian influenza have also been confirmed in recent days at sites in Essex, Cheshire and Cumbria. On Monday (22 November), the disease was identified near Wells-next-the-Sea, North Norfolk.
