New Honours option for Veterinary Technology

13 Feb 2017

Vet Tech student nursing possumThe new Bachelor of Veterinary Technology (Honours) is accepting enrolments in 2017.

This HECS-liable undergraduate program is a practicum-based honours year during which students complete a #4 research project.

This program provides hands-on, advanced training for veterinary technologists. Students will be based in approved, referral veterinary practices or other animal/technical environments (e.g. zoos, research institutes, government agencies). They will work as part of a para-veterinary team in managing clinical or professional caseload and activities, under the guidance of UQ staff and an external preceptor. This Work Integrated Learning approach to training will prepare the student for an advanced level of professional practice, as well as enhancing their employment prospects through acquisition of contextually appropriate skills and competences.

This program offers an individually designed program that enables students to gain hands-on experience in the practical application of a veterinary related discipline in a work environment.  At successful completion of this course, the student will be able to demonstrate advanced knowledge and mastery of skills relevant to the discipline.

There is a GPA entry requirement and is open to graduates from the Bachelor of Veterinary Technology or equivalent non-UQ AQF level 7 degree.  Further information can be found here. The Program Coordinator is Associate Professor Michael Noad.
