The new Veterinary Science suite in Liverpool

Welcome to the Liverpool Campus

Based at the Thompson Yates Building and the Veterinary Teaching Suite, the Liverpool Campus provides teaching for the first three years of the undergraduate course around themes of normal animal structure and function, animal husbandry, disease processes (infectious diseases, pathology and parasitology), public health, epidemiology and welfare, management of disease, research, clinical and professional studies. The teaching is backed up by regular ‘scenario’ sessions from the first week that students arrive, incorporating real-life decision making and problem solving. These scenarios can be as diverse as vomiting in an elderly cat, to an outbreak of abortion in sheep.

Liverpool is an incredible place to live and study, with over 800 years of history, an international reputation for high-class sport, music, and architecture, and no end of other cultural experiences for students to take advantage of during their time in the city.

By spending much of their preclinical years in the city itself, veterinary science students are able to take advantage of all that Liverpool has to offer, including the new facilities offered in the Thompson Yates Building and the Veterinary Teaching Suite. Situated centrally in the North Campus, the Thompson Yates building includes a furnished social learning zone equipped with computers, a furnished museum space for staff-student integration, and a centralised office where all student enquiries can be dealt with.

A short walk away from Thompson Yates Building, the Veterinary Teaching Suite (VTS) has two rooms in which practical sessions can be taught, each of which has space for 85 students; these can also be combined into one large room with capacity for 170 students. The VTS is equipped with state of the art audio-visual equipment, including high-resolution cameras and displays. It has a fully-equipped clinical skills laboratory, where students can hone their skills in such diverse areas as bandaging, auscultation, and physical examination of their simulated patients.
