Expressions of interest (EOI) were recently sought by the Higher Education Authority (HEA) from institutions with capability to expand existing courses or create new courses in academic year 2024-25 or 2025-26, in a number of areas including veterinary.
The process is currently in a second stage with further information sought from institutions. The closing date for receipt of this information was Monday 16th January 2023. As the process is ongoing, the HEA is not releasing further details at this point in time.
The Veterinary Council of Ireland is the Statutory Body responsible for the regulation and management of the practice of veterinary medicine and veterinary nursing in Ireland. The Higher Education Authority is engaging with the Veterinary Council as part of their assessment process.
The HEA will make recommendations to the Minister in due course in respect of the five disciplines covered by the EOI (medicine, pharmacy, dentistry, nursing and veterinary science)
