Sydney School of Veterinary Science

The best veterinary school in Australia, 9th in the world*
Leading veterinary education, animal science and research that advances the health and welfare of animals and benefits the community.

What does it mean to be the best university for veterinary science in Australia? It means being taught by world-leading animal and veterinary scientists from the moment a student sets foot on our campuses.

It’s studying in the latest facilities, in small groups to maximise learning, and in courses at the cutting-edge of knowledge in the field.

It means leaving as a globally respected graduate with the experience and skills to make a difference to the health, welfare and conservation of animals all around the world.

And it means undertaking research across a range of specialisations to better tackle the big, complex issues facing the world.
