Agriculture, Environment and Veterinary Science

Agriculture is the study of food and crops and their production. Agriculture also looks at the earth, animals, nutrition, environment, and disease epidemics. On the other hand, Veterinary is all about the diagnosis and treatment of diseases, malfunctions, and injuries in animals.

Students who study Agriculture and Veterinary come into close contact with nature, which means their study is not limited to four walls; it requires observation, examination, testing, analysis, experiments, and other sophisticated skills. One of the best aspects of studying agriculture is that it provides us with the opportunity to travel around the world and work in different climates. Veterinary students must be comfortable while handling the animals as it involves the diagnosis and treatment of the animals.

Students who want to earn an Agriculture or Veterinary Medicine qualification must have studied biology, chemistry, environmental sciences, economics, and business in their previous level.

As the world is trying to move back to nature and as many people around the world are becoming aware of the environment, and are embracing the profession of agriculture and animal farming, Agriculture and Veterinary is gaining more popularity among international students.
