Veterinary Nursing

The programme is designed to be flexible; applicants may not wish to enrol for an MSc but to study some of the modules as part of a continuing professional development programme. 1 or more triads of modules will be delivered over a year to make up a post-graduate certificate (PgC) in a particular topic area. Individual modules could be studied for continuing professional development, 6 modules studied for a post-graduate diploma or 6 taught modules plus the research project for the MSc.

Entry requirements

Candidates will be required to have a veterinary nursing qualification and will normally have obtained a minimum of a 2nd class degree in veterinary nursing or an animal science subject, or the Dip AVN with evidence of success in level 6 study. For all applicants, evidence of previous qualifications is required. However, all are judged on their individual merits.

Course modules

Modules: Companion animal life care; companion animal behaviour; client support; small animal complementary therapies; veterinary hydrotherapy; veterinary analgesia and pain management; veterinary oncology; research project.
