The first two years are delivered primarily through case-based, tutor-facilitated teaching and learning. This is a distinctive student-led approach that sets the programme apart from other graduate entry programmes in the UK.
In the bespoke first and second years of the course you will study the integrated structure and function of animals, principles of disease, clinical veterinary science and professional studies.
Years three and four will integrate with the final two years of our five-year BVSc Veterinary Science degree, and you will further develop your skills in clinical sciences and professional studies.
