This degree offers a regional perspective relevant to local wildlife and animal health, and will also highlight key issues of international relevance by exploring suitable examples and case studies. Laboratory-based learning is supported by fieldwork at sites such as farming and breeding enterprises, animal health practices and natural habitats with wildlife populations.
You will study a wide range of topics including anatomy, animal health, biochemistry, cellular metabolism, immunology, microbiology, physiology and zoology.
In the final year, there is an opportunity for a research project or industry placement to explore your own area of interest and develop advanced technical skills.
You will be prepared for further studies in veterinary science to allow you to practice in the field. Past graduates of this course have been successful in gaining graduate entry into veterinary science. Your eligibility will depend on the university and your results.
