The Faculty of Veterinary Science is the only facility of its kind in South Africa, making it the only institution responsible for training veterinarians and veterinary nurses in the country. The faculty also plays a key role in the further development of veterinary education and science through its offering of a number of post-graduate programmes from post-graduate diplomas to specialist programmes in veterinary medicine. As a result, our graduates and research programmes are vital in enhancing human and animal health, promoting biosecurity and welfare, and ensuring our production animals, wildlife and pets are safe and in good health.
