Veterinary Medicine – Special arrangements for applicants seeking entry in 2023:
Applicants must normally have at least 60 hours practical experience relevant to animal handling. This must include experience with at least two of the following four animal categories: Pets, Horses, Farm Animals, Wildlife/Zoos. Due to the difficulties applicants were experiencing in getting placements as a result of the pandemic, the requirement has been reduced to 30 hours experience for 2023 only in two animal categories. For 2024 the requirement will revert to 60 hours.
|If you choose a Science subject & a 3rd European language you will have the subjects requirements for every course in UCD except Veterinary Medicine which requires Chemistry along with 4 other recognised subjects to include Irish (unless exempt) and English.|
