A key component of The AVBS degree is the Placement program. This is a workplace-based program requiring a minimum of 40 days of placement to be completed by the end of the third year (6th semester) of your degree. At least 15 days must be completed On-Farm. The remaining days are undertaken in a range of other approved work environments. The aim of the program is to encourage students to gain experience in a wide range of animal related industries and introduce them to the many career options available to them after graduation. We encourage students to apply their skills and knowledge in a professional environment, while also developing a real-world view of animal industries.
