Finally There’s Going to be a Veterinary Degree Offered in S’pore

Calling all A-level and poly students, if you dreamed of becoming a vet, you probably would have looked up at overseas universities.

But now, you can enrol yourself in a local uni!

According to a report by Today, NUS will be rolling out three new undergraduate courses in the upcoming academic year, one of them being veterinary medicine.

It will be the first institute to offer the said course in Singapore on a degree level.


Study to become a vet

NUS will be partnering with the University of Melbourne, so you will get to study abroad!

You will be studying at the latter for 4 years (including a year of reading Doctor of Veterinary Medicine modules) after finishing your foundation module locally for 1 1/2 years.

But won’t it be expensive?


If you enrol yourself in NUS, your tuition frees will 15% cheaper as opposed to studying as an international student in Melbourne.

After running the gauntlet of assignments and lecturers, you will come out of it with a bachelor’s degree in life sciences from NUS alongside a professional veterinary science from the University of Melbourne.


There are more courses!

According to the report, only 78.4% of fresh graduates from local universities (NUS, NTU and SMU) got full-time positions in 2017, the lowest since 2012.

My colleague even wrote an article on it!!

So, they will also be rolling out more double major courses to curb the problem, giving them more options when they enter the workforce.

To find out more, you can head down to NUS Open Day on 10 March at U-Town.
