Abstract

The First Year Curriculum Principles (FYCP) provide guidance to intentional first year curriculum design which aims to carefully scaffold students' learning,and support and engage them whilst acknowledging their diversity. In this paper,we apply the FYCP to benchmark the first year veterinary curriculum at James Cook University. First year veterinary students are similar to other commencing university students in their need for development of learning skills necessary for higher education. As well as adapting to the needs of tertiary study, veterinary students also have to develop a range of specific skills necessary for veterinary education early on. The work presented here highlights the range of teaching and learning approaches embedded within the first year veterinary curriculum which assist students to make a successful transition into veterinary science.
