The Royal (Dick) School of Veterinary Studies

Entry requirements

A good university Honours Degree (first or 2:1), or equivalent (e.g. 3.25 GPA score in the USA), with a biological background, for example a degree in:

  • Veterinary medicine/ Veterinary science
  • Biological sciences
  • Zoology
  • Psychology
  • Animal/Equine Science

We may consider applicants with degrees in other disciplines if you have a minimum of 5 years' demonstrable experience working with companion animals in a relevant capacity. Please contact us to check before you apply. You may be admitted to professional development or certificate level, rather than the full MSc in the first instance.

Once successfully on the programme, completion of the three core courses is a pre-requisite for progression to subsequent courses.

English language requirements

If English is not your first language, we will also need to see evidence of your English language proficiency before we can offer you a place.
