Royal (Dick) School of Veterinary Studies
Applications are welcome from candidates who already hold a first degree. Candidates should have a minimum of an upper second class degree in an appropriate science subject and will be considered for entry to the newly introduced four-year graduate entry programme. This exciting new programme, which is tailor-made for graduate entrants, will use innovative educational approaches to ensure that the students attain the same level of training as those entering the third year of the programme via the traditional five-year course. Candidates with a non-science degree will still be considered for the five-year course but should consult the Admissions Office before applying.

Integrated clinical studies, microbiology, pathology, parasitology, pharmacology, epidemiology
Practical clinical rotations. A total of 34 weeks
A 2:1 Honours degree in a biological or animal science related subject.
