Applying for the Bachelor of Veterinary Science (Honours)


UQ is introducing a situational judgement test for the Bachelor of Veterinary Science (Honours).

You will have to sit the test if you are applying to study the Bachelor of Veterinary Science (Honours) from:

  • 2019 for domestic students
  • 2020 for international students.

Along with the test, you still have to meet all other entry requirements for the program. These are displayed under 'Program details' on the Bachelor of Veterinary Science (Honours) page. 

Domestic applicants who apply through QTAC will have to complete the test to be considered for a place in the program.

About the 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 assist in the selection of applicants who are best suited to the rigours of veterinary science and the profession.

The situational judgement test used by UQ is called CASPer, which applicants sit online. Tests will be scheduled in September and October 2018. Exact dates will be available on the CASPer website once they are finalised.

Find out more about the CASPer test, including:

The use of a situational judgement test is still subject to final approval. We expect this to be confirmed before QTAC applications open in early August. This page and the CASPer website will be updated with relevant information once the test is approved.
