This subject contains a 60 days Compulsory Workplace Learning component.
The WPL component is Animal Husbandry Extra Mural Studies (AHEMS) which is comprised of 12 weeks off campus placements at student selected farm enterprises, undertaken in non-session time over a two year period, but at a time of the students choosing. Students can begin AHEMs placements at the end of Session 1 Year 1 and they must be completed before the end of Session 1 Year 3. Essentially the 12 weeks of AHEMS is a requirement of the veterinary science accrediting body of Australia, New Zealand and the United Kingdom. VSC331 is the collection point of AHEMS reports and these will contribute to a significant component of the subject's grades.
