About BVSc Veterinary Science: Accelerated Graduate Entry
The Bristol Graduate Entry BVSc is an accelerated, four-year veterinary degree. The first two years are delivered through case-based, tutor-facilitated teaching and learning. This is a distinctive student-led approach that sets the programme apart from other graduate entry programmes in the UK.
In the bespoke first and second years of the course you will study the integrated structure and function of animals, principles of disease, clinical veterinary science and professional studies.
Years three and four will integrate with the final two years of our five-year BVSc Veterinary Science degree, which will further develop your skills in clinical sciences and professional studies.
Bristol Veterinary School at Langford is a rural campus that boasts first-class clinical facilities alongside farm animal, small animal and equine practices on-site, allowing you to gain experience of working on first opinion cases on farms and in clinics.
