Course content

Postgraduate research in the School of Veterinary Science is largely based at the Langford campus, which houses a large number of research groups along with Langford Veterinary Services and the University farm.

The strength of the school's research programme is greatly enhanced by its position within the Faculty of Health Sciences. Our research extends from the fundamental to the applied and we collaborate with other research groups in the faculty and beyond, building on a policy of integration of basic science with veterinary activities.

Our postgraduate students are members of the Faculty of Health Sciences Graduate School and benefit from the training opportunities this provides. We welcome enquiries and applications from prospective MSc and PhD students.
