Programinligting

Hierdie inligting is slegs in Engels beskikbaar.

This programme is accredited with the South African Veterinary Council (SAVC), Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons (RCVS) and the Australasian Veterinary Boards Council (AVBC).

Each student must apply immediately after first admission to the Registrar of the South African Veterinary Council for registration as a student in Veterinary Science. Registration is compulsory and must be renewed annually for the duration of the study.

After the degree has been conferred, graduates are required to register with the South African Veterinary Council as veterinarians before they may practise in South Africa in this capacity.

Toelatingsvereistes

  • Entry into the BVSc programme is highly competitive due to popularity of the programme and limited available spaces.
  • Selection is based on merit. The Faculty does not determine specific selection cut-off values as these are determined by the strength of the applications in a particular year.
  • School-leavers

 A valid NSC/IEB/Cambridge qualification with admission for degree purposes.

Subject requirements and an Admission Point Score (APS) as indicated in the table below. The APS is calculated from the achievement levels obtained in the six 20-credit subjects of the NSC. Life Orientation is excluded when calculating the APS.

Preliminary selection is based on Grade 11 results, and final selection on National Senior Certificate performance in Mathematics, English and Natural Sciences, as well as the Veterinary Value-added Form (VVAF). Additional selection criteria may be used including an interview and a portfolio of evidence, among other things.

  • Applicants with previous higher education exposure

There is an opportunity for students with previous higher education experience to also apply for the BVSc programme.

Placement in either the first or second year of the BVSc programme will depend on, among others, merit and subject choices.

  • International students

A small number of international students may be admitted to the programme, including those from neighbouring Southern African Development Community (SADC) countries. Once applicants have been accepted for this programme, they willreceive a letter of acceptance from the University, which will facilitate their application for a study permit. A valid study permit, obtained in the country of origin, is a prerequisite for registration.

The National Benchmark Test (NBT) may be required for international applicants.

    Veterinary infectious diseases is a module aimed at providing the student with in-depth knowledge of all aspects of diseases of food-producing and companion animals caused by viruses, bacteria, fungi and prions. The module is structured to enable students to discern which infectious diseases of animals are high impact diseases and which are of lesser significance in order of importance. The module covers the morphological and physico-chemical characteristics of the causative organisms and the epidemiology and pathogenesis of the diseases caused by them. Course candidates will also learn how to diagnose these diseases in both the living and dead animal, and the control strategies applicable, including control at the livestock/wildlife/human interface. Finally, course candidates will learn about the socio-economic importance of infectious diseases of animals with special reference to transboundary spread.
