Applying for the Bachelor of Veterinary Science (Honours)

If you're applying for the Bachelor of Veterinary Science (Honours), you'll need to sit an online situational judgement test called CASPer.

Along with the CASPer test, you still have to meet all other entry requirements for the program. Check the requirements on the Bachelor of Veterinary Science (Honours) program page.

About the CASPer test

We recognise that skills and attributes such as resilience, critical thinking and communication are essential for veterinarians, but are not always reflected in academic performance alone.

The situational judgement test will be used to select and identify applicants who are best suited to the rigours of veterinary science and the profession.

You'll need to register at least 3 days before taking the test. Test dates are available on the CASPer website.

When taking the CASPer test, you'll need access to a computer, internet connection and webcam. Using a tablet to take the test is not recommended.

There are no designated testing centres – you can complete the test anywhere that has a reliable internet connection. The registration process includes system checks and internet connection speed tests.

Find out more about the CASPer test, including:

You must submit your QTAC application before you can register with CASPer. You can't add the Bachelor of Veterinary Science (Honours) as a preference on your QTAC application after the last CASPer test for the year.

You must submit your UQ application before you can register with CASPer. Applications can't be considered after the last CASPer test for the year.
