Type of institution: University/Higher Education Institution
Veterinary Science at the University of Adelaide has a unique focus on Australian livestock production, equine health, aquaculture and biosecurity and involves input from a range of partner institutions, government agencies and industry. This Bachelor program forms the first part of the veterinary science program. It is followed by a three-year postgraduate Doctor of Veterinary Medicine program, focusing on the clinical skills required for veterinary practice. Students satisfactorily completing the undergraduate degree and 12 weeks of Animal Husbandry Extra Mural Studies (AHEMS) will gain direct entry into the postgraduate program. Following successful completion of the Bachelor program, it is expected that students will continue on to the postgraduate coursework Doctor of Veterinary Medicine program. Following accreditation, students completing the entire six-year program will be eligible for registration as veterinarians. Students may, however, leave the veterinary program following successful completion of the Bachelor program.
The first year level involves studies at both North Terrace and Roseworthy campuses, while later year levels of the program will be based at the Roseworthy campus. Students must satisfactorily complete 12 weeks of Animal Husbandry Extra Mural Studies (AHEMS). Students will undertake placements at various locations, including farms and intensive production facilities. After consultation with the Extra Mural Studies coordinator, placements can be undertaken, throughout Australia. Overseas placements are possible, pending approval. Students will be expected to travel to locations and the capacity to drive would be an advantage.
