Graduate Employability: 95%

A degree in Veterinary Medicine prepares students for a career as a veterinary practitioner – whether that be in general practice or more specialist fields such as farm animal or equine. Vet students learn about the structure and function of a healthy animal, animal husbandry, and disease of animals – diagnosis, treatment and control. Courses are highly vocational with students spending a considerable amount of time on clinical placements.
