Applying for the Bachelor of Veterinary Science (Honours)


UQ has introduced a situational judgement test for the Bachelor of Veterinary Science (Honours).

The situational judgement test used by UQ is called CASPer, which applicants sit online. All applicants applying for the Bachelor of Veterinary Science (Honours) will have to sit the test.

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.

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 select and identify applicants who are best suited to the rigours of veterinary science and the profession.

Tests are scheduled in August, October and November 2019. Exact dates will be available on the CASPer website. Registration will open shortly and will remain open until the day before the scheduled November exam date.

When taking the CASPer test, you will 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; the test can be completed anywhere that a reliable internet connection is available. System checks and internet connection speed tests are included in the registration process.

You must lodge your QTAC application before you can register with CASPer.

Domestic applicants can't add the Bachelor of Veterinary Science (Honours) as a preference to their QTAC application after the November 2019 CASPer testing session is finished.
