RVC Master of Research (MRes) may be for you if you do not wish to commit to undertaking a PhD but want to try a sizeable research project and get the generic skills applicable to research. You can do this over one-year full time, or over two years part-time while you are continuing your career.

The MRes is designed to equip you to acquire the experience and the skills needed to enter a PhD programme or to move on to careers where advanced research experience will help you. It is an excellent training opportunity for both biological and veterinary graduates and addresses both basic and clinical problems in the biosciences, with applications in veterinary and human medicine. Research areas span cell and molecular science, whole animal physiology and population medicine.

An RVC MRes will develop you as a scientist who is capable of working across interdisciplinary teams and who can tackle problems of practical relevance to veterinary and medical science. You will:
- Learn from experts who produce cutting-edge research in a range of subjects and are published in the top academic journals
- Join an international team of staff and students
- Benefit from close proximity to other international centres of excellence in biomedical and biological sciences.


With more than 100 research-active staff at the RVC, the range of research topics is vast, extending from molecules to whole animals and animal populations. We focus on two main research themes:

- Comparative physiology and medicine: our understanding of animal disease, together with the superb facilities at the RVC, means that we are all well placed to contribute to the way in which human diseases are diagnosed and treated.
- Livestock production and health: there is international recognition of the need for new approaches to meet the growing challenges of livestock production, to control infectious diseases that threaten humans and animals.

You will join the RVC to undertake a specific piece of work under the direction of two supervisors, working within one or more of the RVC’s research groups. We offer a range of specific MRes projects which you can apply for, or you may have your own area of research in mind. Most of our MRes students are self-funded, but we do occasionally have funded MRes projects.

Your MRes will culminate in a research dissertation of 10,000-15,000 words and an oral presentation.

To underpin the research you are undertaking you will participate in training skills workshops, courses and seminars alongside other post-graduate researchers.

For our October 2017 MRes intake we are offering range of self-funded projects. The projects currently available are listed below. Further projects will be added:

- Dr Camilla Benfield Potential of a portable DNA sequencer, MinION, to detect animal viral disease
- Dr Rowena Packer Owner decision-making in the treatment and management of dogs with idiopathic epilepsy
- Dr Monica A Daley Quantitative assessment of the interaction of personality and social dominance in poultry
- Dr Rob Noad Putting the bite on red mite: Towards anti-parasite vaccines in poultry

You will be expected to contribute to the running costs of a project. The sums required will vary between projects and you should discuss this with your supervisor.

The deadline for applications is 24th April 2017


If you are interested in undertaking a self-funded MRes project and your area of interest lies outside the projects listed above you can still apply to study with us.

You need to have an area of research in mind and your research project and supervisor should be agreed before you formally apply via UKPASS.

You will be expected to contribute to the running costs of a project. The sums required will vary between projects and you should discuss this with your supervisor.

The deadline for applications is 30th June 2017

The MSc Veterinary Physiotherapy programme is designed to optimise and enhance the competencies of Chartered Physiotherapists to produce technically competent, effective and safe veterinary physiotherapy practitioners in line with current professional standards. Individuals will be encouraged and supported through critical reflection on the similarities and differences relating to practice in the human field of physiotherapy.

In particular the course promotes the philosophy of life-long learning and encourages students to develop their skills in critical thinking. You will be encouraged to critically analyse research and evidence and apply your findings to practice.

The course aims to help you recognise your role and responsibilities in the field of veterinary physiotherapy and animal welfare. It will enhance your clinical skills as well as your capacity to deal with complex relationships between animals, their owners/handlers and other healthcare professionals. The course will also introduce you to the legal, ethical and financial issues involved in veterinary physiotherapy/ private practice.

This part-time programme is available to registered physiotherapists who are looking to specialise in animals. Graduates from this programme will either have a Postgraduate Diploma or MSc in Veterinary Physiotherapy, which will allow them to upgrade from Category B membership of ACPAT to Category A. Once qualified, students will be eligible to set up their own business in veterinary physiotherapy or be employed in the industry.

Topics you study on this programme could include Clinical Practice, Comparative and Applied Anatomy Physiology and Biomechanics, Understanding Veterinary Diagnostics and Physiotherapy Assessment, Research Methods and Applied Business Management.

Students will also be able to complete their own research and explore their own interests by completing a postgraduate dissertation in the third year if they choose to. You will also be required to undertake periods of clinical placement and students are expected to undertake a significant amount of independent learning.

The course is offered on a part-time basis with teaching delivered in ‘blocks’ of study (each block is usually between two and four days in length and there are approximately 12 blocks of attendance per year) on both weekdays and weekends. Additionally, there will be times when students are required to attend for individual days, e.g. where assessments are scheduled.

The campus is equipped with excellent equine and animal science facilities including laboratories, hydrotherapy both canine and equine, treadmills both canine and equine, a world class championship arena and much more.

Overview

Writtle University College has an excellent reputation for its existing undergraduate Equine Sports Therapy course that has both academic and professional input and by popular demand we now offer an MSc Veterinary Physiotherapy.

This exciting course, first delivered in September 2014, is run in conjunction with the National Association of Veterinary Physiotherapists (NAVP). The programme is designed to develop the skills of the student to support Veterinary Surgeons in the rehabilitation of a variety of species and will in particular focus on Equine and Canine patients. It will also focus on supporting Equine and Canine athletes both during competition and for recovery.

It is designed to enhance competency in existing therapists and to help students with less experience achieve their goal as capable and knowledgeable Veterinary Physiotherapists. The programme offers successful students the opportunity to become part of the existing para-professional cache of Veterinary Physiotherapists by developing excellent understanding and knowledge of structure in relation to function, treatment, rehabilitation of a variety of animals and of course business skills for those who plan to be self-employed.

If you would like to find out more about our postgraduate courses please see here: http://www.writtle.ac.uk/Postgraduate-Courses

Course Structure

The programme will be run on a part-time basis over three years. The first two years will be taught on a modular basis and will require the student to attend one weekend a month in the first year and attendance in the second year will additionally include placement days with a variety of Physiotherapists. These two years will comprise the Postgraduate Diploma in Veterinary Physiotherapy and if successful the student will be invited to become a member of the National Association of Veterinary Physiotherapists and be able to practice. The third year involves the dissertation and on completion the student will have a full MSc Veterinary Physiotherapy.

Careers

A successful Veterinary Physiotherapist will soon find that demand for their services outstrips their availability as there are a limited number of qualified therapists in the industry. Additionally, Para-professionals in the veterinary world may soon be limited to those carrying a recognised postgraduate qualification.
