Doctor of Veterinary Medicine Degree

As a UK student wishing to achieve the Doctor of Veterinary Medicine degree at SGU, you have various options, depending on your academic background and professional aspirations.

St. George's University Academic Structure

You may enter the preveterinary programme during one of three preveterinary years, or go directly into the four-year Doctor of Veterinary Medicine degree programme.

Four-Year Medecine Programme

The preveterinary programme is designed to provide students with the foundation to handle the rigorous coursework necessary to achieve a veterinary degree, and is delivered at our Grenada campus. Students from the UK with strong passes at A Level will typically only need to complete the final year of this programme before progressing to the four-year Doctor of Veterinary Medicine degree programme.

Requiring a BSc for entry, students who undertake the four-year Doctor of Veterinary Medicine degree programme spend three years on a mixture of didactic coursework in basic sciences and introductory clinical work in medicine and surgery in Grenada, with hands-on training beginning in year one. This is followed by a fourth year of clinical training at one of 29 affiliated veterinary schools around the world, which include two of the seven UK veterinary schools.

Dual Degree Programme

We also offer dual degree programs providing students with the opportunity to study public health or to pursue an MSc in research with concentration in anatomical pathology, anatomy, bacteriology, marine medicine, morphological and clinical pathology, parasitology, pharmacology, virology, or wildlife conservation medicine, while pursuing their veterinary medical education.

Fourth Year Clinical Sciences

The fourth year of the St. George’s University veterinary curriculum is delivered at our affiliated School of Veterinary Medicines in the United States, the United Kingdom, Canada, the Republic of Ireland and Australia.

At these affiliated universities students will complete 48 weeks of clinical training alongside veterinary students currently enrolled at these universities. Upon successful completion of the fourth year, students will graduate from St. George’s University School of Veterinary Medicine.
