Course content

The RCVS Certificate in Advanced Veterinary Practice (CertAVP) is a flexible, modular approach to achieving veterinary postgraduate qualifications.

Credits are awarded by RCVS and not the University of Edinburgh, which means the programme is not eligible for a University of Edinburgh award.

You can design your own postgraduate certificate by choosing a combination of 10 credit elements that reflects your area of interest and are directly relevant to your work. As part of this consistent, flexible framework, you can choose modules from a number of accredited institutions in the UK.

You are also encouraged to support your study by undertaking appropriate continuing professional development (CPD) and working closely with a mentor or senior colleague with experience in the subject area and/or personal experience of undertaking veterinary postgraduate qualifications.
