Months of entry
It is designed as a series of three module postgraduate certificates, though most will be available as stand alone modules (please see Course Structure for proposed modules).
Successful completion of two sets of modules (i.e. 6 modules) will lead to an award of a postgraduate diploma and it is intended that 180 credits will lead to an MSc in Veterinary Nursing. Entry will require a Veterinary Nursing qualification and prior study at degree level.
It is not yet certain which of the certificates will be offered in the first year - that will depend upon demand. Delivery will be by blended learning; a combination of days on-site at Harper Adams for keynote lectures, seminars and practical classes, and distance learning supported by the electronic Learning Hub. VNs currently studying the Dip AVN are enjoying this flexible method of delivery.
