Welcome to the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons

Registration dates (veterinary surgeons)

If you are applying to become a registered member of the RCVS, you will need to select your preferred date for a registration appointment in order to proceed with your application.

We will contact you within 15 days of receiving all your documents and payment to confirm your registration appointment. We will contact you sooner if we have any queries regarding your eligibility requirements or documents you have submitted.

Please note, registration dates can become fully booked very quickly, so please submit your application as early as possible and provide two preferred registration dates on your Initial Enquiry Form. We will always do our best to accommodate your preferred registration date.

Please view the list of available dates below.

View details on how to register.

If you need to attend a registration appointment because you have been offered a veterinary position in the UK, and there are no available dates listed ahead of your start date, please submit a copy of the job offer letter you received from your new employer (ensuring it includes your start date) with your Initial Enquiry Form. Please note this will usually be dependent on the cancellation of an existing appointment, so we are not able to guarantee you an earlier appointment but we will do our very best.

For more information, please contact the RCVS Registration Department on 020 7202 0707 or email where a member of the team will be able to assist you.
