Scotland’s Rural College (SRUC) in Aberdeen has announced it is moving to a new £350,000 home for animal care and veterinary nursing at the Mill of Craibstone on the SRUC campus.
SRUC will invest over £350,000 into the new animal care unit, as it aims to bring the Mill of Craibstone on SRUC’s Aberdeen campus back into full-time use for staff and students.
The SRUC team will move the animals across the campus to their new homes in July, in time for the official opening and start of the next academic year in August. The investment is part of SRUC’s vision to “become a 21st-century rural enterprise university, with a strong regional footprint across the country”.
Prof Caroline Argo, Dean of SRUC North Faculty, said: “SRUC is firmly committed to the Aberdeen area, and this new centre for animal care is part of our exciting plans for the region.
“This new home for animal care gives us the potential to expand in the future. We are already looking at ideas to create a centre of excellence unique to North East of Scotland and I look forward to sharing more about this in the future.”
