What Do Our Alumni Say?
Testimonial quote icon

I would describe the Immerse Academic Insights programme as intellectually stimulating, diverse, inspiring, motivating. I’ve definitely enjoyed meeting new people from all around the world, it has been amazing. I’ve loved studying something that I’m so passionate about, and being around like minded people and learning with them has been an incredible experience.

We’ve done dissections and other practicals such as suturing and gone through a lot of content that I wouldn’t have learned at school. I feel like the Immerse course is really preparing me for higher education by giving me insight into what being a university student might be like.
I looked at the essay competition and it seemed like an incredible opportunity, so I applied for the essay competition, got a partial scholarship, and here I am!

FAQs

Why study Veterinary Studies in Sydney?

Sydney’s animal care institutions and veterinary community offer a unique context to study veterinary studies. Engage with veterinary experts, gain hands-on experience, and explore animal healthcare innovations in the context of Australia’s diverse wildlife and thriving community of pet-lovers.

The Veterinary Studies programme is available for students aged 13-15 and 16-18 in Sydney only.

Immerse Education programmes are designed to provide a unique insight into what it’s like to study a subject at university level, with tutors designing rich and interesting curricula to enhance participants’ passion for their chosen discipline. For detailed information on the Veterinary Medicine programme, including specific topics of study, the course syllabus is available to download. 

Immerse™ Veterinary Studies Sample Modules

To see how the programme is structured, view the Academic Insights timetable here.
Module 1 - Life and Evolution

Biology is an immensely diverse science. Evolution is the unifying concept that runs through the life sciences, from the origin and diversification of life to understanding behaviour, to dealing with disease. Evolution through natural selection is the framework in biology in which specific details make sense. This session will explore how new species continue to arise while others go extinct and discuss the role of mutations as the raw material on which selection acts. By the end, you will have developed the ability to examine novel biological systems and understand the complex processes that have shaped those systems.

Animals kept for food and companionship, are diverse and beautifully complex. In this session, students will develop an understanding of the structure and function of domestic animals with an emphasis on the systems relevant to animal scientists. The session includes learning about the anatomy and physiology of domestic animals’ cells, basic tissue structure, and an overview of homeostatic control systems. An understanding of the normal functioning of these systems allows the identification of how these systems can be influenced by animal management and the animals’ environment.

This session will provide the foundation for a career involving animals with an emphasis on livestock (cattle, sheep, pigs, fish/aquaculture, and poultry), horses, and wildlife. A focus on a clear understanding of animal production systems and the global environment is developed through tutorials and hands-on in-field practicals. We will learn about indigenous animal management, animal husbandry, animal health and welfare, and genetics.

Effective metabolic function is critical for animal health and well-being. Based on case study work, students will compare and contrast the structure and function of the hepatobiliary, endocrine and urinary systems of different species, leading to explaining the processes. This session will increase students’ knowledge of the metabolic processes of cells, tissues, and whole animals by examining the structure. We will apply knowledge of animal nutrition and function to determine the underlying basis of metabolic disease and disorders and how to alleviate the dysfunction.

The era of genomics has revolutionised our approach to biology. Recent breakthroughs in genetics and genomic technologies have led to improvements in human and animal health, in breeding, and in the curation and care of wild species and complex ecosystems. Students will investigate and describe ways modern biology uses genetics and genomics to study life, from the unicellular through to complex multicellular organisms and their interactions in communities and ecosystems.

Veterinary pathogenesis is a wide branch of veterinary science that focus on the concept of the interaction between the host (or the animal), the agent of disease (genetics, physical, chemical, and infectious agents), and environmental factors. In disease states, the host responds to the aetiological agent of disease and the environment through one of the basic five pathological processes that occur in tissues. A case-based approach will be used to illustrate these principles and enable the student to develop a problem-solving approach and skills in critical thinking.

One of the greatest limiting factors to the health and well-being of animals under our care is the nutritional value of their feed. Whether provided by nature or manufactured to meet the production and health needs of farmed animals, being able to provide suitable nutrition to animals in our care is fundamental to good animal health management. We will build up our knowledge of animal nutrition by assessments of nutritional adequacy and solving nutritional problems. You will develop the skills to create diets based on sound science, to meet animal requirements for a variety of purposes and under a variety of constraints. Students will also identify deficiencies, excesses, and imbalances in diets minimising disease risk.

Animals play a significant role in the lives of people and communities, this includes food, production, and pets for companionship. This session integrates the areas of animal biology and ecology with that of veterinary science. You will learn about the science that underpins the biology of animal health and disease including physiology, molecular biology, infectious agents and animal welfare. An emphasis will be on the prevention, treatment and understanding of disease in production and companion animals and wildlife.

This session will delve deeper into the study of organ function and dysfunction in animals. We will introduce the normal structure and function of the nervous, ocular and auditory systems, and the ability to identify the dysfunction of these systems. Pharmacology and therapeutics will relate to this session. We will apply our knowledge to case-based learning, enhancing the development of clinical reasoning abilities and analysing cases involving multiple organ perturbations.
