The Ministry of Presidential Affairs and the HCT had signed recently an agreement to develop a Diploma in Veterinary Medicine, which will start in September 2013. The course will include all aspects of study of Veterinary Medicine that focus on the health and welfare of animals as well as their benefit to the community.

“We are actively involved in raising awareness on the importance of the welfare of wildlife and species conservation and as such believe that knowledge of our environment and biological sciences is vital for the next young generation of Emiratis.

We commend both the Ministry of Presidential Affairs and Higher Colleges of Technology for spearheading this opportunity which will undoubtedly add significant value to entities such as ours”, Al Hajeri said.

HCT aims to provide training at the highest level of efficiency in order to meet the growing needs of the country’s veterinary field. After the completion of the Diploma programme, students can also pursue a Bachelor’s degree in Veterinary Medicine in order to qualify as licensed veterinarians.
