Hey just wondering if anyone does Vet Science at CSU. Just some comments on it and so on. Thats what i want to do so im just curious to find a bit more about the course.
Vet Sci is a very demanding course. If you understand that a medicine course like the MBBS only studies one physiological and physical system, well in Vet Sci you have to learn the skills to treat a whole range of physiological and physical systems. MBBS graduates also choose to specialise (ie. surgeon, pathologist, endocrinologist, dermatologist etc, even a dentist), whereas veterinarians often have to learn the skills to adapt in all kinds of medical situations. Sounds tough but veterinarians also notoriously have higher job satisfaction than human medical practitioners, which says a lot.lmelro01 said:Hi all, i lived with 2 girls who did Vet Science last year, one second and one first year. They both loved the course but were constantly doing assignments and studying for exams. But if you are passionate then thats the way to go. One of the assessment the first yr girl had was identifying like 50 different types of grass or something! Lol. From what i can gather there is lots of practical work including disections of horses, sheep etc etc, preg testing cows, studying embryos that kinda stuff. Hope you guys get in, all the best!
Did you end up getting in?greMlin72 said:yes, i got an interview. let's just hope i get in. the cut off this year was equal to or <90.
Yeah, it doesn't really seem fair. But I assume that in the future when funding increases and they expand their facilities they'll increase the number of places, atleast I know that's what JCU plans so I would assume CSU is thinking along the same lines.aussiechick007 said:wow yeah, i read something like that in my letter, tis a bit rough there are so few places ><
Check out this site, it might answer your question >RogueAcademic said:Just out of interest, does anyone know if Australia is short of vets? Just wanting to put this in context, with the number of people wanting to get into the courses and so few relative places available.
