Accreditation & Registration

International Programme Accreditation

City University of Hong Kong is engaged in a process with the Australasian Veterinary Boards Council (AVBC), ultimately leading towards international accreditation of the Bachelor of Veterinary Medicine. The Programme was granted “Provisional Accreditation” after admission of the first cohort of BVM students in September 2017, which has recently be re-confirmed in June 2019. The Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons (RCVS) is engaged in the accreditation process under their reciprocal recognition agreement with the AVBC and the most recent accreditation review was carried out jointly by these two bodies in February 2019.


Registration

Graduates of AVBC/RCVS accredited schools are expected to be eligible to work as veterinarians in the jurisdictions that recognise these particular accrediting authorities. Besides, individual graduates need to fulfil the registration requirements of any relevant professional bodies, which can include certain minimum fitness to practice standards relating to medical or physical conditions, conduct or competence issues, disciplinary findings, convictions, language skills, etc. (as an example, information about the registration requirements of the Veterinary Council of New Zealand can be found HERE).

Information about registering as a veterinary surgeon in Hong Kong is available on the website of the Veterinary Surgeons Board of Hong Kong: https://vsbhk.org.hk.

China's Ministry of Agriculture will also allow veterinary graduates who are Chinese nationals and are registered in Hong Kong or Macau to sit the Chinese National Veterinary Licensing Examination.
