Study Details

MSc: 3-4 years full-time

The three- or four-year MSc in Veterinary Sciences is designed to give senior clinical training scholars a grounding in clinical research skills. All residents register for and study for a master's as part of their residency training programme. 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.

Module details

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.
