UQ Veterinary Students Association
If you’re considering studying at an Australian Veterinary School, or specifically at the UQ Veterinary School, you should know that there is a University of Queensland Veterinary Students Association (UQVSA) available to support you during your studies! The UQVSA is elected each year from within the upcoming fourth-year class, by the veterinary science student body, to act as their representative.
The role of the UQVSA is to support the veterinary science student body by
- representation within the university and the animal health care industry as a whole;
- providing educational resources, equipment and recreational amenities;
- acting as a central coordination and approval system for negotiating funding and sponsorship from UQ, corporate sectors, government sectors and other external sources; and by
- organizing professional seminars, social events and the special interest groups (SIGs).
The UQVSA aims to provide a professional voice of representation for the UQ Veterinary School student body. Their aim is to support the students while ensuring they graduate with not only an excellent education, but also a rewarding and enriched university experience.
