The course has responded to calls for innovation in veterinary education while aiming to uphold current best practice in adult education to support independent, self-directed, and collaborative learning.
It has been designed specifically for graduate learners and will see students guided through case-based, tutor facilitated teaching and learning.
The programme is based on a collaborative approach, where students can work together to gain practical experience from BVS clinics and clinical research.
Students will benefit from teaching by nationally and internationally recognised staff in brand-new purpose-built teaching facilities at the Bristol Veterinary School in Langford, North Somerset, on the edge of the Mendip Hills.
The Langford Campus also boasts first-class clinical facilities and encompasses equine and small animal hospitals, a dairy farm, diagnostic laboratories, and farm animal, small animal and equine practices.
Professor Richard Hammond, head of Bristol Veterinary School said: “As someone who was a graduate entry veterinary student myself, I feel passionately about providing opportunities to those who make the choice to train as a vet later in their educational journey.
“This new programme, delivered in purpose built, state-of-the-art facilities will focus on a more student-centred, case-based approach in small groups and with lots of tutor contact and support. We look forward to welcoming our first cohort of students to Bristol in September 2019.”
