University of Glasgow, School of Veterinary Medicine FEEPASS Programme (Facilitated Early Entry Programme for Animal Science Students)
The University of Glasgow, School of Veterinary Medicine is offering an innovative programme whereby selected students complete the final year of their animal science degree at the University of Glasgow. During their time at Glasgow, students will study alongside students on the first year of the University of Glasgow's veterinary medicine degree programme (Bachelor of Veterinary Medicine and Surgery, BVMS – which is the equivalent to the DVM). Successful completion of assessments in the Vet FEEPASS year will provide credits, which following transfer to their home institution, will allow completion of the student's animal science degree from their home institution and accelerated entry to year 2 of the University of Glasgow's BVMS programme. This is a reduction of one year from the total duration of study required to become a DVM and has associated cost benefits.
The University of Glasgow, School of Veterinary Medicine, has an internationally renowned reputation in Veterinary Medicine, and is fully accredited by the AVMA. The University of Glasgow is working with selected Universities across North America, to offer a unique opportunity for high quality animal science students who wish to study veterinary medicine, within the global context.
The University is one of six Vet Schools in Europe to have achieved accredited status for its undergraduate programs from the American Veterinary Medical Association. Following satisfactory completion, a guaranteed place in an AVMA accredited veterinary school.
