This course includes a preliminary year whereby you will study the basic science subjects of animal biology, chemistry, and animal care and behaviour, ensuring you have the relevant levels of scientific knowledge to progress onto our five-year BVM BVS programme. Recognised by the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons, we are one of only two UK veterinary schools fully accredited by the European Association of Establishments for Veterinary Education. We provide a progressive and dynamic approach to veterinary education, leading you through a clinically-integrated programme with body-system based modules, each covering all of the common domestic, wildlife, and exotic species. Our philosophy is that your education needs to be hands-on, ensuring that you develop your animal handing and husbandry skills from the beginning.
During the preliminary year you will learn key chemical concepts and animal biology. Following this, years two and three develop learning primarily about the "normal" animal. Year four provides an opportunity to focus on a research project of your choice. You will also develop further understanding of principles underpinning clinical veterinary sciences. In year five you will learn about animal production, trauma management, disease processes, diagnosis, management and prevention. This part of the course also integrates learning of pathological processes with the food industry, zoonotic disease and public health. Year six consists of a series of Clinical Practice Modules that comprise small-group clinical teaching in a hospital/practical/laboratory situation at our Clinical Associates.
