About this course

The Bachelor of Science is a versatile degree that provides students with the optimal balance between a defined sequence of study in a specified major and flexible course options. This innovative program has been designed to develop graduates with the key practical skills and interdisciplinary knowledge required to address today's global challenges.

Animal and Veterinary Bioscience combines fundamental biological disciplines such as chemistry, biochemistry, biostatistics and microbiology with courses that examine animals from the molecular scale through to whole animal populations.Students will acquire a sound biological training to form the basis for on-going research training, application to industry or related sectors, or professional program progression such as veterinary science.Animal and Veterinary Bioscience is also available as an extended major.

Pathway to Veterinary Science:

This major is an ideal pathway for students aiming to improve their entry rank for admission to the Bachelor of Veterinary Science (Honours). Some credit towards the BVSc(Hons) may be available based on courses completed in the BSc.

Eployment opportunities:

Students will find employment in industries concerned with the health, welfare, nutrition and management of production and companion animals, and wildlife.

Diverse career options for students include working in roles such as consultant for animal production; health and wellbeing; animal nutritionist; biosecurity officer/consultant; animal reproduction consultant; conservationist; research scientist; and industry regulator in Government agencies.

There are also opportunities to pursue a career in research. Additional study at Masters or PhD (Doctor of Philosophy) level will prepare students for specialist research roles.
