Graduating in Veterinary Medicine

  • Summer session
  • Autumn session
  • Winter session.

In the Deadlines and calendars section you will find the dates for each session and all the steps required to take the final exam.

Upcoming graduate survey
Upcoming graduates are required to fill in the survey within the term set for each session.
