The Royal (Dick) School of Veterinary Studies at The University of Edinburgh launched a new part-time online distance learning MVetSci in Conservation Medicine in September 2015. The deadline to apply is the 24 August 2015
The programme is aimed at veterinary graduates world-wide who wish to pursue a career in the rapidly developing field of conservation medicine, in order to gain enhanced employment opportunities in academia, research, governmental and non-governmental organisations and consultancy.
Conservation medicine is a relatively new and emerging discipline that studies the health relationships that occur at the interface of animals, humans and ecosytems.
The Royal (Dick) School of Veterinary Studies has the only Exotic Animal and Wildlife Unit in any UK veterinary school and has international expertise and reputation in wildlife medicine.
It takes 36 months to study for the MVetSci, 24 months for Postgraduate Diploma, and 12 months for the Postgraduate Certificate. Intermittent study is also available, allowing you to study for up to 6 years to gain the Masters qualification.
Postgraduate Professional Development
If you are looking for a shorter course option, we offer online credit-bearing courses which run for 11 weeks at a time. These lead to a University of Edinburgh postgraduate award of academic credit. You may take a maximum of 50 credits worth of courses through our Postgraduate Professional Development scheme. These credits will be recognised in their own right at postgraduate level, or may be put towards gaining a higher award, such as a Postgraduate Certificate, Postgraduate Diploma or MSc.
