What are the entry requirements?

Educational Requirements
Bachelors Degree in Veterinary Science, Animal Science or equivalent.

Note: Prior study, even if not a University degree, might make you eligible for entry to Graduate Certificate but will be assessed on a case by case basis.

English Proficiency Requirements
Internationals students who can provide certified proof that their previous tertiary studies were conducted entirely in English are not required to provide further proof of English proficiency.

Otherwise, we require a minimum:

  • IELTS of 7.0 with Writing and Speaking bands of 7.0, or
  • TOEFL 600 plus TWE 5.0, or
  • Computer-based TOEFL 250 plus Essay Rating 5.0.

Note: Applicants who do not meet the above English proficiency requirements but can demonstrate sufficient working knowledge required for study (e.g. those who nearly miss the cut-off criteria of English proficiency tests) can be considered for a non-award unit of study on a case by case basis. They can eventually apply for admission to a formal degree based on their performance in the unit of study.
