Can I transfer after first year to veterinary science?



Unfortunately we are unable to accept transfers on to the Veterinary Science BVSc before the completion of other degree programmes.

For entry as a graduate onto the Veterinary Science BVSc we would require: 

An upper second class (2.i) Honours Degree completed in the last 5 years, together with Biology and Chemistry at A-level.

  • Bioveterinary Science, Zoology or Animal Science (BSc) degrees; grades CC in Biology and Chemistry at A-level
  • All other science (BSc) degrees; grades BB in Biology and Chemistry at A-level
  • Arts (BA) degrees; grades AA in Biology and Chemistry at A-level

Graduate applicants must also fulfil the GCSE criteria as detailed on the link above.

Due to introduction of a new veterinary curriculum, we no longer offer the accelerated (4 year) programme; therefore all students must complete the 5 year programme.
