The degree of BVSc enables you to acquire the professional skills, knowledge and experience necessary to qualify as a veterinary surgeon. You will study the science of normal structure and function (cell biology, anatomy, physiology, genetics), how husbandry of individual animals and groups affects their health (nutrition, animal husbandry, animal behaviour), as well as the mechanisms and treatment of diseases (epidemiology, pharmacology, infectious diseases, pathology, parasitology and public health) in your first three years, alongside clinical and professional skills. You will also complete a research project. The clinical course includes 36 weeks of small group teaching (clinical rotations) in Years Four and Five, which are integrated with extra-mural studies (EMS). You have a choice of elective subjects, which are studied in greater depth. Currently 38 weeks of pre-clinical (husbandry), public health and clinical EMS are completed during the five-year programme. You receive special training in communication skills.You may also undertake an intercalated degree, for example the BSc in Veterinary Conservation Medicine, and extend your programme.This programme is accredited by the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons (RCVS) for the purpose of eligibility for registration as a veterinary surgeon with that body.This programme is available with a Year in China.
