Last day of enrolment for all students previously enrolled, Friday, 24 January.

Last day of enrolment for new students, Friday, 21 February.

N.B.—Students wishing to enrol for First Year Veterinary Science must submit an application for selection in the course not later than Friday, 17 January, at the Scientific Branch of the Registrar's Office.

Candidates must not wait until the results of Scholarships are announced before lodging their application for selection.

Applications for selection will not be accepted after Friday, 17 January.

On 27 and 28 February, the Students' Representative Council arranges con- ducted tours of the main University buildings and makes opportunities for students to meet members of the teaching staff. On these two days, students receive a great deal of information about study at the University which may answer most of the practical questions which concern them before the beginning of term.

Lecture Terms: 1st—From 2 March to 16 May 2nd—From 8 June to 8 August

3rd—From 7 September to 17 October

Annual Examinations commence 26 October. (Last day of entry, 23 July.) Courses


A five-year course, the fourth and fifth years being spent in residence at the Veterinary Clinical Centre, Werribee.


Candidates for this Degree must pursue a course of advanced studies and research, under such supervision as the Faculty may prescribe, for not less than one year, at the end of which he must submit a thesis and a review of the literature. He may also be required to pass an additional examination.


This is a degree for full-time research workers. A candidate must be a gradu- ate of this or some- other University recognized for the purpose, must be of such standing1 as may be required by the Professorial Board for graduates in his Faculty, and must be accepted as such by the Professorial Board on the recommendation of the head of the department concerned. He must pursue for at least two years a course of advanced study and research under a supervisor or supervisors appointed by the Board, and on its completion must present a satisfactory thesis embodying the results of his research. The only part-time candidates who are accepted by the Professorial Board are permanent members of staff. (See Regulation R.3.60 in University Calendar, 1963.)


Obtainable only by thesis on a subject approved by the Faculty of Veterinary Science. Candidates must be Bachelors of Veterinary Science of at least three years standing.

Policies Governing Admission 1964 Quotas and Selection

In view of the shortage of laboratory accommodation and the increased enrol- ments, the University Council has placed a restriction on the number of students permitted to enrol in the First Year of the Veterinary Science Course.

A quota of 50 students has been fixed by the University Council but selection is I Present requirement for Veterinary Science: М.V.Sc. or В.V.Sc., with two years' experience in research.


made by the Professorial Board. The basis of selection is academic merit judged in the first instance by reference to the Melbourne Matriculation Examination. In accordance with principles prepared by the Professorial Board and approved by Council, an academic order-of-merit list is prepared by a Selection Committee and submitted to the Professorial Board for approval.

Method of Selection

In preparing the order-of-merit list, the following factors will be taken into account:

(a) The number of years spent preparing for the matriculation examination after passing the Leaving Certificate examination or its equivalent.

(b) The results obtained at each matriculation examination, including the number of subjects studied, presented for and whether honours, passes or failures were scored in these subjects. Special attention will be given to the results in recommended preparatory subjects for the Veterinary Course, i.e.

Chemistry, Physics and a branch of Mathematics.

(c) The number of attempts required to qualify for mаtriсulаtiоп.

(d) Normal place of residence of applicants.

The order-of-merit list is carefully checked and in the final analysis, comparison may be made on the basis of marks scored in the various subjects of the matriculation examination. Special attention will be paid to those students grouped immediately above and below the 50th position on the order-of-merit list. Students who are grouped about the dividing line may be interviewed by the Selection Committee and, where necessary, reference made to Headmasters' reports, before the final order-of-merit list is prepared.

The Professorial Board has decided that, of the 50 candidates to be selected, a limited number may be non-Victorian. By "non-Victorian" is meant students whose homes are in other states of Australia or overseas, but who attend secondary schools here and present for our matriculation examination. These students are considered with Victorians on the basis of their academic results at the Melbourne Matriculation Examination.

The Selection Committee may also consider for selection, applicants for admis- sion ad eundem statum whose normal place of residence or whose intended place of permanent residence is in Victoria and whose exclusion would cause undue hardship.

Applications for admission ad eundem statuin must be submitted no later than

1 November, 1963. .


Students wishing to be considered for admission in 1964 should apply in the following manner:

All students must lodge an application for selection not later than Friday, 17 January, at the Scientific Branch of the Registrar's Office. Late applications cannot be accepted.

Note.—Although applications will be accepted up to Friday, 17 January, students are requested to lodge their applications (without waiting for examination results) riot later than Monday, 30 September, in order to expedite the selection process.

Faculty Pre-requisites

In addition to matriculating, candidates must also have passed the pre-requisite subjects (if any) prescribed for their course. There are no pre-requisites for the B.V.Sc. course but students are advised to include in their Matriculation subjects Chemistry, Physics and a branch of Mathematics.

Recognition of Work done at Technical or Agricultural Colleges Candidates over eighteen years of age who have completed an approved diploma course (three years of an approved full day diploma course may be accepted) at a recognized Technical College may receive credit, upon matriculation, in the course for the degree of Bachelor of Veterinary Science, for subjects the necessary equivalents of which have been passed at the Technical College. The credits granted will not be equivalent to more than one year of the course unless the candidate is over nineteen.

For special conditions as to matriculation for Technical College students, see under Matriculation.

List of Approved Equivalents

The Technical Colleges Board may determine that credits given in any subject or subjects are for the purposes of a specified course at the University, and in such cases candidates transferring to another course may not be given credits in the corresponding subject or subjects of that course without permission of the Board.

A certificate from the Principal stating what stage the candidate has reached in the diploma course must be submitted with this application, and this certificate must specify the subjects passed or exempted in the course, the date passed and, where possible, the marks obtained.

Applications for credits must be made on the prescribed form, obtainable at the Registrar's Office.

• Students who'have passed one of Electrical Technology II, Electrical Engineering (Special А.C. and D.C. course) or Electrical Technology (Special course of A.C. or D.C.) may apply for permission to substitute one of these subjects for Electrical Engineering Grade I when applying for credit for Physics part I.

Fees for the clinical years have not yet been arranged, but are expected to amount to approximately .335 for each year, including accommodation for 30 weeks at #.6 per week.

In addition to the above, costs of books and essential equipment amount to approximately £ 30 a year, and the graduation fee is £ 13/13/-.
