In 1904, Liverpool became the first veterinary school to be incorporated into a University. The foundation was a seminal event, establishing veterinary medicine as an academic scientific discipline and opening up the opportunity of government funding for what had been a private professional training in the art of veterinary practice. Some forty years later, the University acquired the first veterinary field station to be established in the UK; Leahurst, on the Wirral Peninsula, became the prototype rural site for all British city-centre vet schools. The intervening years have not, however, rendered us complacent. Over a century later, Liverpool is still an innovative school, in the forefront of veterinary teaching and research. Voted No 1 UK vet school in The Times Good University Guide 2006, awarded 24/24 in the QAA's Subject Review and a top score of 5 in the RAE 2001, we have been cited as the [UK] university with the most satisfied [veterinary] students' in the most recent survey carried out, in 2005, by the British Veterinary Association and the Association of Veterinary Students. Quite some accolade!
