Veterinarians are dedicated to the wellbeing of animals. They are scientists, surgeons, carers, and lifelong learners.

Our Bachelor of Science (Veterinary Bioscience) is ranked 49th in the world for veterinary sciences and has a Five Star Excellence in Research Australia ranking^.

You’ll enjoy the smallest class size of any veterinary program in Australia. This means more personalised attention from our highly experienced teachers and researchers as you:

  • explore the anatomy, physiology and behaviour of normal animals and identify the pathogenic organisms that attack them
  • learn about animal handling and husbandry
  • experience real industry settings including farms and intensive production facilities
  • undertake a significant amount of hands-on animal work, starting in semester 1
  • access our $37 million purpose-built veterinary teaching and research facilities.
This is the first part of the veterinary science program. Graduates gain direct entry into the Doctor of Veterinary Medicine program. Completing both degrees makes you eligible to register as a veterinarian, where you might own a practice or travel to farms around the country treating animals. Veterinary bioscience could also lead to roles in research in equine, zoo animal or wildlife medicine. You might even work in biosecurity, managing programs to prevent disease and pollution.
