Naturalist

Not surprisingly, some aspect of the natural sciences will run through the Naturalists interests - from ecological awareness to nutrition and health. People with an interest in horticulture, land usage and farming (including fish) are Naturalists.

Some Naturalists focus on animals rather than plants, and may enjoy working with, training, caring for, or simply herding them. Other Naturalists will prefer working with the end result of nature's produce - the food produced from plants and animals. Naturalists like solving problems with solutions that show some sensitivity to the environmental impact of what they do. They like to see practical results, and prefer action to talking and discussing.

Veterinary Medicine - Graduate Entry

Posted on February 7, 2019

Current 2nd year Veterinary Student Tharsicaa Vimalarajah shares her insight into UCD’s Graduate Entry Level Veterinary Medicine Programme ...

Hi, I’m Tharsicaa, I study Veterinary Medicine at the graduate entry level as an international student here at UCD. I previously completed an undergraduate degree in a Specialist in Biological Chemistry in my home country Canada. Becoming a Doctor of Veterinary Medicine has always been a passion of mine.

UCD is the only school in Ireland to offer a degree in Veterinary Medicine. It is typically offered both as an undergraduate taught degree and a graduate taught degree. The graduate taught program for Veterinary Medicine is a 4-year program which includes a final year of clinical rotations at UCD’s very own Veterinary Hospital that sits adjacent to the Veterinary sciences building. UCD’s Veterinary Medicine program is an integrative way of learning veterinary medicine while getting hands on practical experience right from day 1.
