Equip yourself with the theoretical and practical skills to become a para-veterinary healthcare specialist working in animal health and welfare.
The Bachelor of Veterinary Technology will teach you to apply a range of skills to support animal health through handling and care, welfare and behaviour, veterinary surgical nursing techniques, and veterinary practice management. Build a base in biological science by studying the mechanisms of animal disease and diagnostic techniques, clinical aspects of small and large animal health, applied and clinical nutrition, veterinary pharmacology and animal therapeutics. Select from a wide range of elective courses to focus your skills or to pursue an area of interest. You will also complete at least 80 hours of practical sessions in your first and second years, as well as extramural studies of 30 days. Undertake clinical rotations and industry placement in locations such as vet clinics, vet hospitals, wildlife parks, government agencies, welfare organisations, animal breeding enterprises, research facilities, and pharmaceutical companies.
