In Australia, professional degrees can be undertaken either straight from high school at the undergraduate level, or after one has completed a university degree, at the graduate-entry level.
For professional degrees which train students to become veterinarians, students can study Veterinary
Medicine/Veterinary Science in Australia as either
- a Bachelor of Veterinary Science degree; or
- a Doctor of Veterinary Medicine degree.
Melbourne's Doctor of Veterinary Medicine (DVM) program is offered only to students who have already obtained an undergraduate science degree.
Bachelor of Veterinary Science programs in Australia are suitable for students who wish to gain entry into a veterinary professional program directly from high school or after having completed undergraduate studies.
Canadian students have the option of applying to the Bachelor of Veterinary Science program directly from high school or after having completed Bachelor of Science courses or a degree.
