Academic Modules

Our courses deliver academic content that is designed to challenge and provoke intellectual curiosity among students. Our passionate and experienced tutors will guide students through some key principles and topics. Students will be supported and guided through interesting topics such as:

Module 1 – Veterinary Public Health & Epidemiology

This subject is learning around the nature of threats to animal health in the population. The topics covered will include the factors that increase the risk of disease and ways diseases are transmitted, in addition to subjects like antimicrobial resistance and research.

Module 2 – Clinical and Study Skills

Clinical skills and study skills are essential for aspiring veterinary science students. We will give you an overview of the skills you will need throughout Veterinary School.

Module 3 – Infectious Diseases 

Learning about infectious diseases will cover the study of disorders caused by organisms. Many organisms live in and on animal’s bodies and are normally harmless or even helpful, However, some organisms may cause disease under certain conditions.

Module 4 – Anatomy and Physiology

Anatomy refers to the form and structure of animals and the science behind it. Physiology deals with the study of functions of the body or any of its parts. 

Module 5 – Alimentary system

This is a study of the animal digestive system and the gut. Covering the organs that food and liquids travel through when they are swallowed, digested, absorbed and leave the body – also known as the digestive tract and gastrointestinal tract.

Module 6 – Locomotor

Locomotor is the study of animal movement and the variations of movement between different species of animals.

Module 7 – Cardiovascular & Respiratory Systems

In mammals and birds, blood absorbs oxygen and releases carbon dioxide in the lungs. The function of the circulatory and respiratory system is to work in tandem.

Module 8 – Reproduction and Welfare

The relationship between reproductive effectiveness and animal welfare is complex. Good reproductive performance doesn’t automatically lead to good welfare, and visa versa.  

Tutors’ topics may vary slightly depending on their area of study and industry expertise, but all topics will be consistent with current top-ranked university curriculums.
