A flexible world-leading veterinary programme

The Master of Veterinary Medicine attracts students from all around the globe to this world-leading distance education programme.

Massey’s Master of Veterinary Medicine programme offers practicing veterinarians a flexible, modular system of study via distance. You may choose from a wide range of small animal, large animal, equine, epidemiology and veterinary business courses.


Massey University’s veterinary programme is internationally-recognised - we were one of the first in the Southern Hemisphere to earn American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA) accreditation.

You will also be joining one of the few distance education programmes for veterinarians that offers the option of completing a qualification.


Your courses will advance your knowledge and skills to an in-depth level beyond that obtained in your primary veterinary degree. Courses can be completed for continuing education or put towards a Master of Veterinary Medicine or other qualification.

Massey University has an excellent reputation for veterinary teaching, with our expert lecturers coming to us from all over the world.

All courses in the Master of Veterinary Medicine programme are delivered by distance learning, and there is no restriction on where in the world you can live.

Massey is New Zealand's premier distance education provider, with fifty years of experience and advanced online tools, forums and interactions with lecturers to facilitate your study.

As well as specific knowledge in areas of interest, you will strengthen your:

  • technical knowledge and skills in particular fields of general (non-specialist) veterinary practice.
  • exploring effective problem-solving strategies within the constraints of general veterinary practice
  • confidence in your skills and in your approach to cases.
  • skills in sourcing and evaluation of literature relevant to clinical practice
  • ability to reflect and self-assess your work

On-campus workshops are held in Palmerston North, New Zealand. Attendance at these workshops is strongly recommended, but not compulsory (with the exception of the capstone Contact Workshops which are compulsory either in-person or online). All courses require a computer and internet access.


Massey University’s veterinary programme is ranked in the top 50 universities worldwide by both the Quacquarelli Symonds (QS) ranking and ShanghaiRanking's Global Ranking of Academic Subjects.
