Application deadline: TBC. For the 2015 intake, the application deadline was December 5, 2014.
Entry Requirements
Students can apply for a position into the Sydney DVM after completing any kind of bachelor degree at a recognized university, as long as program prerequisite units of study have been met.
Applicants must have completed the following prerequisite units of study at bachelor-degree level to be eligible for entry:

  • general chemistry (physical and inorganic)
  • organic chemistry
  • biology
  • biochemistry

The minimum GPA for entry is a 2.8 on a 4.0 scale; however, places are limited and there is a strict quota for this course.

The higher your GPA, the better your chances of receiving an offer.
