Veterinary Science

The three- or four-year MSc in Veterinary Sciences is designed to give senior clinical training scholars a grounding in clinical research skills. A significant component of the master's will relate to clinical responsibilities in your chosen specialist areas. Additional units are designed to enhance universally important skills such as scientific writing, statistical analysis, critical reading and teaching. A research project will form an essential part of the master's degree and European diploma requirements. Applications are welcome from veterinary surgeons who are interested in pursuing further specialist studies after completing a junior clinical training scholarship. Applicants will need to be Members of the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons (MRCVS) and be qualified to practise in Europe. Applicants will be responsible for their own MRCVS registration and this must be in place before starting the residency/MSc.

Entry requirements

Entry is open to qualified veterinary surgeons who have been offered a residency/senior training scholarship position in a specialist veterinary area.

Course modules

There are four core units: three clinical skills units and a clinical research project. The clinical skills units are based around the European training guidelines for specialist veterinary qualifications in your chosen subject.
