The OPVSC Welcomes You!

The OPVSC stands for the Onderstepoort Veterinary and Para-veterinary Student Committee.  

We function as the student representative council at the Faculty of Veterinary Science, Onderstepoort, University of Pretoria.
 
The committee handles all student-related matters on campus such as academics, social events and sports to name a few. We strive to act as the voice of the student body and have direct contact with the staff of the Faculty. Our aim is to improve communication between the students and the Faculty of Veterinary Science. As students, we have the best interest of the students at heart and strive to make their wants and needs known.
 
Our goals are to improve our overall image within the faculty, and by the end of the year we want to highlight ourselves as a committee that the students can continually rely on for faculty information. We strive to lead selflessly and to make an impact in the lives of those around us.
 The pinnacle achievement at the end of our term would be to inspire students to follow in our footsteps and serve their fellow students.
 
We have a wide range of portfolios that try to cover all aspects of student life, like Acadmeics, Social & Culture, Sport and Transformation to name a few! 
Find out more about our portfolios here.
 
If you need to contact our committee, speak to us directly by sending an email to  [email protected].  
We are always ready to assist you!
