Veterinary Medicine and Surgery BVM BVS with BVMedSci

Our veterinary course is highly rated by our students*. You will get hands-on with animals from day one and can choose when you start - September or April.

You'll learn theory and practical aspects of domestic, wild, and exotic species, with clinical experience integrated throughout the course. Practicing with our Clinical Associates on your placement year ensures you learn a varied case-load of animals and treatments.

Teaching is delivered through body system-based modules in years one and two, which integrate traditional medical subjects, such as anatomy and physiology. Topics are then repeated within a clinical module in year three or four.

Uniquely, our courses have an integrated BVMedSci, saving you a year of study, tuition fees and living costs. This part of the course will help enhance your ability for continual learning and development in veterinary medicine through research.

Admission Requirement / Eligibility Criteria

2:1 (or international equivalent) in architecture or a similar subject. This must include modules in architectural design amounting to 25% to 50% of total credits. 

Applicants to all MArch programmes in the Department of Architecture and Built Environment are required to submit a portfolio of their design work with their application. The portfolio enables us to see that you have some of the core skills required to be successful on an MArch course and to see the range of skills and types of projects that you have completed in your undergraduate degree.

The portfolio should be submitted with your admissions application in PDF format and less than 10Mb (please submit this directly to the MyNottingham application system).

The portfolio should have a:

  • minimum of 10 and a maximum of 15 images
  • letter confirming that this is your own work - the letter should come from a tutor or course teacher who has been responsible for you and should be on institution headed paper
  • front cover of the portfolio which shows your full name

The portfolio should contain examples of a few design projects that you have completed as part of your taught university education. Try to show different presentation techniques that represent your design skills (such as plans, sections, perspectives, physical and computer models, etc). The images can be any from architectural, urban, planning or landscape projects that you have completed in your studies.

You may also include a few sketches, paintings, photographs, still life or life drawings to show your skills (maximum two pages) and an example of a project that you have completed as part of work experience or a professional placement (maximum two pages)

Portfolios will be judged on whether you have the visual skills required together with a keen sense of judgement and spatial awareness in your work.

You will need a minimum of 4 weeks animal handling work experience, covering a broad range of animals. You should try to include some time spent on equine, lambing, dairy and small animal husbandry work. This could include days at:

  • veterinary practices
  • catteries
  • farms
  • kennels
  • laboratories
  • rescue centres
  • riding schools
  • zoos

Work experience can be done over varying hours and days. All experience needs to be completed within three years prior to application and by the 15 October application deadline. Work experience booked after this date will not be taken into consideration.
