MSc Veterinary Epidemiology

Join our online Veterinary Epidemiology Masters programme and gain a graduate degree from a world-leading university.

We are committed to offering a high-quality experience to all our students.

We are working to minimise the impact of Covid-19, but we have reluctantly decided that we will be unable to offer this programme for entry in 2020. 

We anticipate that this degree will be available again for entry in September 2021, but we are not currently in the position to confirm that. Applications for the next intake usually open in October.
