A Veterinary Medicine degree in Ireland will give students an excellent base to begin their veterinary career, equipping them with the knowledge and ability to help with the surgical treatment and care of animals. Transferable skills will also see graduates move into sectors such as food safety, research and pharmaceuticals.
A typical Veterinary Medicine undergraduate degree lasts five years and modules generally cover anatomy and physiology, animal husbandry, microbiology, public health, parasitology and pathology. The first two years of the programme are classed as the foundation phase, with the third and fourth clinical and fifth professional.
Veterinary Medicine graduates are in demand and will move into private animal welfare practices, as well as working at charities, laboratories, abattoirs and within the public health sector. If a student chooses to continue study at postgraduate level, careers can be forged in more specialist areas of the profession.
Entry requirements vary for each Irish university, but Indian students will need an IELTS score of 7.0 overall, no lower than 6.5 in each component, and an International Baccalaureate score of 36-38 points. Additional, AAA qualifications are required including chemistry, biology or physics.
