    An Information Guide will be prepared to assist you through the online application process. It is strongly recommended that you refer to this guide when completing the online application. The Guide contains information about the course (including eligibility, selection, application requirements, course tuition fees and other fees, timelines for selection and notification regarding outcomes).

    Selection schedule

    The initial round of selection for the Doctor of Veterinary Medicine will take place in late December 2020, and some offers will be emailed prior to Christmas. The Faculty may make a very small number of offers to outstanding applicants prior to December. A main round of selection will take place in early January 2021, and offers to successful applicants will be emailed progressively during the third week of January. Offer letters to successful applicants will be generated and issued before outcome letters to unsuccessful applicants.

    Please note that the selection process is ongoing until all places in the course are filled, and therefore discussion with Faculty or Admissions staff about the progress of an application is not permitted.

    All applicants will be notified of the outcome of their application by mid-February 2021.
