    Hiya,
    I haven't been very active for a while but I'm back

    I have a request for curriculum info for the RVC course. It would be great if current students could let me know what classes you take in 1st and 2nd year and perhaps the graduate transition year.

    So far all I know is the following with regards to the graduate course:
    Elements of the course:
    Animal Form and Function
    Integrated Structure and Function
    Animal Husbandry
    Veterinary Pathology and Immunology

    So... if anyone could give me more info (as detailed as possible) that would be great.

    Thanks,

    Hayley

    Hi Hayley,

    That looks up to date regarding my year on normal BVetMed, the curiculum has now changed however to become more 'integrated'. The graduates do the first two years in one year, witha lot more emphasis on indivudual private study and learning than in the normal course. Then you join the normal BVetMed course at the start of their third year, your second year and from then on you are together with at least 200 people.

    Having said all that, are you doing the graduate accelerated course on the normal course?

    They are exams where you will have normally two examiners, ina room with live animals and random bits of dead animal. They will ask you a basic question (which you're supposed to know the answer to) and then you just have to answer the questions they ask, they normally are 20 mins and you'll be taken to either 2 or 4 bits of dead animal. They are really nerve-wracking, esp when you get a lecturer who teaches something you know v little about as an examiner.

    Not sure if that makes sense, just ask more if it doesnt

    Ah ok, so what i said above should apply. Tbh im not sure if the graduate course has changed much from when my friend did it last year but they will bring you up to the same level (or probably better) than the year you will be joining.
