Bachelor of Veterinary Science (IHCAP)

Bachelor of Veterinary Science (IHCAP)

The Indigenous Health Careers Access Program (IHCAP) is designed to increase Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander student success in pursuing a health career. This program is the only one of its kind in Australia and provides a free one-month orientation course where you will complete the subject English for Academic Purposes.

IHCAP then continues to provide you with the practical skills and knowledge to better cope with the demands of university study.

Veterinarians play a major role in the healthcare of pets, livestock, zoo animals, sporting animals and laboratory animals.

Students acquire the knowledge and skills to diagnose, treat and prevent disease in a wide range of animals, including companion animals, farm animals, horses, aquatic species and native fauna. In addition, students acquire a thorough knowledge of animal production systems, particularly tropical animal husbandry and aquaculture.

The Bachelor of Veterinary Science (IHCAP) requires you to complete 132 credit points. This will take 6 years if you study full time.
