Ross University School of Veterinary Medicine (RUSVM) has established an articulation agreement with Ngee Ann Polytechnic (NP) in Singapore.
Through the agreement, graduates of NP’s Veterinary Bioscience diploma program will receive priority consideration for admission to RUSVM, provided that they meet certain academic requirements. Qualified students will have their application fees waived, guaranteed interviews and be considered for eligible scholarships, according to RUSVM.
“At RUSVM we aim to train veterinary students to serve animal and public healthcare needs for the 21st century, anywhere in the world,” said Elaine Watson, Ph.D., DSc, FRCVS, dean of RUSVM. “We are extending our reach across the globe to recruit aspiring veterinarians prepared to learn about everything from zoonotic disease threats to environmental, conservation and food safety and security issues to the latest advances in the care of pets.
“This new partnership with Ngee Ann Polytechnic will help ensure that committed and talented students from Singapore have the opportunity to become part of this vision and develop rewarding careers in veterinary medicine, training at a school based in the tropics.”
Veterinarians are growing in demand in Singapore, according to Hedy Goh, Ph.D., director of the NP School of Life Sciences & Chemical Technology.
“This agreement provides our students with an opportunity to advance their education and prepare them for future employment possibilities, as well as providing a viable option to achieve their dreams of becoming veterinarians,” Goh said.
