School of Veterinary Medicine and Science shortlisted for Times Higher Education award
Nottingham University’s veterinary department is shortlisted for the Times Higher Education Leadership and Management Awards 2012 in the Outstanding Departmental Administration Team category.
The university recently received accreditation from the RCVS and has since implemented new administrative models that give academics more time to research, teach and respond to students.
The university has also been commended for its student experience and modern IT-department. As e-learning becomes ever more important technology plays an increasingly important role in veterinary school.
