The Department of Veterinary Medicine houses a wide range of skilled staff, facilities and equipment, and has a wide clinical patient group to support students' research. It also has strong ties with world-class groups elsewhere in the University and its surrounding Research Institutes. We have particular Research strengths in Disease Dynamics, Infection and Immunity, and Systems Pathology. There is a wide range of potential research subjects on offer: from mathematical studies to small and macromolecules, cells, tissues and model organisms to clinical patients. Our one-year full-time (two years part-time) MPhil research programme leads to the MPhil in Biological Science (Veterinary Medicine) degree. Students are based in a research group and undertake research on a topic agreed with the Supervisor. There is no examined coursework but students can take part in a wide range of both knowledge-base and working skills training. Students will be expected to take training courses in specialist areas as appropriate. An examination is entirely based on the thesis presented at the end of the programme. The programme's main aims are: to give students with relevant experience at a first-degree level the opportunity to carry out focussed research in the discipline under close supervision; and to give students the opportunity to acquire or develop skills and expertise relevant to their research interests.
Applicants for this course should have achieved a UK High II.i Honours Degree. If your degree is not from the UK, please check International Qualifications to find the equivalent in your country.
