Bachelor of Veterinary Science (Honours)

University of Queensland, The (UQ)

The Bachelor of Veterinary Science (Honours) is the University of Queensland's registrable degree program that allows graduates to practise as a veterinarian. Coursework and placement training provide graduates with the foundational knowledge and practical skills needed to apply medical, diagnostic, and therapeutic principles to companion, domestic, exotic, wildlife, and production animals. Veterinary science is vital to the study and protection of animal health and welfare. It requires the acquisition and application of scientific knowledge in multiple disciplines and therefore also offers a high quality biomedical training that can be applicable to non-clinical careers, including research. Veterinarians also play vital roles in protecting human and ecosystems health through principles of One Health practice. Training in trans-boundary diseases and population health are similarly essential to promoting animal productivity and associated industries, and food security.
