Orientation programme and official start of the academic year for first-year students

2019

Message from the Dean (Acting): Faculty of Veterinary Science Being the country’s only Faculty of Veterinary Science, the Faculty plays an essential role in training veterinarians and veterinary nurses who are indispensable to the country’s farming and animal welfare needs. It is also the leading veterinary faculty in Africa and enjoys wide-ranging international recognition. In 2018, the Faculty was ranked 37th among the top 50 veterinary schools globally by the Shanghai ranking system. Despite our international recognition, the Faculty strives to be locally relevant. We are passionate in our endeavours to meet the needs of South Africa. This not only applies to commercial farming, but also to primary animal healthcare, where veterinarians and veterinary nurses assist rural communities and smallholder farmers. Through controlling animal diseases and promoting livestock production, veterinarians contribute to increasing the profitability of commercial and small-scale farming enterprises and thereby enhancing food security and the economic development of livestock owners. Our graduates and research programmes are vital in enhancing public and animal health, promoting biosecurity and welfare, and ensuring that our pets are safe and sound.

The quality of its training is such that graduates from this faculty have no difficulty competing for and entering postgraduate programmes at universities in countries around the world. The Faculty is situated on its own campus, which compares most favourably with the best in the world. It hosts five academic departments, three research centres and the stateof-the-art Onderstepoort Veterinary Academic Hospital (OVAH), through which it offers the majority of its training. The Faculty is also in a unique position to offer clinical training in the surrounding communities and the Hluhvukani Clinic near the Orpen Gate of the Kruger National Park, with services provided in production animal medicine, herd health, state veterinary medicine, wildlife medicine,

community medicine and welfare practice. While we promote an excellent study environment and boast some of the best pass rates in the country, the Faculty is a vibrant place where a wide variety of social and sports activities on- and off-campus are also offered. By joining us, you will be empowered to start an exciting career as a balanced person and professional in all respects. We look forward to welcoming you as a student to the Onderstepoort Campus of the University of Pretoria.

Prof Vinny Naidoo Dean (Acting): Faculty of Veterinary Science
