Admission Requirements

St. George’s University School of Veterinary Medicine offers a range of entry options for applicants of all ages and academic qualifications.

Up to three years of preveterinary medical sciences are offered as a foundation for veterinary medicine to accommodate students from different academic backgrounds. Students presenting secondary school (or Advanced Level or International Baccalaureate) credentials will be placed into the seven-, six-, or five-year Doctor of Veterinary Medicine program based on their academic backgrounds.

Students who do not hold a first degree and wish to obtain a bachelor’s degree in the course of their preveterinary medical studies may be eligible to do so. Evaluation of prior educational background will determine eligibility and appropriate placement within the BS/DVM program.

As the world has become an increasingly technical environment, a basic knowledge in the use of a computer is imperative for all students.
