This course involves mainly anatomy and physiology modules which are revisited at different levels throughout the degree. Teaching consists many complex lectures, dissections, small group teaching and laboratory work. As well as this you are expected to do work placements in your holidays on farms and clinical practices. Most people thoroughly enjoy this process.

Veterinary medicine is a very specialised course for high achieving students interested in animal welfare. Studying anatomy, physiology, pathology in the pre clinical year's (1-3), and how to fix the problems that arise through these in your clinical year's (4, 5). There is also the option to intetcalate after years 2 or 3 to earn an extra degree.

Lecturer quality is very good. The vast majority of the course is interesting although as with every course there are a few tedious parts. Lots of contact hours which is brilliant. Would feel as though I'm wasting £9k if we only had 5 contact hours a week like most courses. Instead we're in on average 3 hours a day

The content of the course is varied and covers all relevant topics. The course is complex and has excellent structure and flow to it. The course works through the body systems in a logical order and helps with learning all the information. The forms of assessment vary which is good as at least one type of assessment suits every person. Some are oral exams or practical exams and some are written.

Brilliant lecturers. Fair few lectures so worth the student fees. First term is getting everyone to the same level and then it ramps up in difficulty in second term. Exams are nice and early then its presentations and a research based library project for the last 7 weeks. Top notch course leading to many professions.
