It aims to provide an open and friendly atmosphere in which to share ideas, innovations and best practice in veterinary education.
The format includes keynote presentations, interactive poster sessions and workshops. All participants are welcome to submit abstracts for posters or workshops and participation is actively encouraged throughout the symposium.
This year the Symposium will be held at the University of Bristol’s School of Veterinary Sciences, Langford BS40 5DU. Registration will be from 10.00 on Thursday 10th July for an 11.00 start. Pre-conference workshops on 9th July.

This is the fifth running of the Symposium, after it started at the RVC, LIVE in 2010. It is an excellent and friendly conference with a range of presentations and interactive aspects. LIVE will be represented at the conference, for example with a pre-conference workshop on PhDs in veterinary education and the veterinary profession. If you are a veterinary educationalist, veterinary student, practitioner or researcher, please consider joining LIVE at VetEd in Bristol this year.
