MSc Veterinary Microbiology

Details Tuition: £20,000 Start Month: September
Add

University of Surrey

MSc Veterinary Microbiology

Programme Description:

On this programme, you will acquire an excellent grounding in molecular biology, immunology and microbiology relevant to the study of veterinary microbiology. This will lead on to the study of the complex mechanisms of host/microbe interactions that are involved in the pathogenesis of specific animal diseases, and will provide insights into diagnosis and interventions, such as vaccines, essential for disease control. The MSc has been designed to increase your understanding and development of critical and analytical skills, such that you may identify problems, formulate hypotheses, design experiments, acquire and interpret data, and draw conclusions. You will have the unique opportunity to gain hands-on experience in the diagnosis of important veterinary diseases within the world reference laboratories of the APHA and Pirbright Institute (PI). There will also be an opportunity to visit Public Health England (PHE) to gain a detailed knowledge of how zoonotic diseases outbreaks are investigated, and to visit the Veterinary Medicines Directorate (VMD), a livestock abattoir and an intensive livestock farm. Colleagues from the CEFAS laboratory will also contribute to the programme, and further research training will be provided during your practical research project. This is a full or part-time programme, intended mainly for graduates, those already working in veterinary diagnostic/research laboratories and staff from other laboratories who want to enhance their understanding of the role of microorganisms in animal health and disease. Pharmaceutical research personnel, policymakers, veterinarians, public health personnel and environmental biologists will also benefit.

University of Glasgow

MVPH Veterinary Public Health

Programme Description:

Veterinary Medicine research at Glasgow is ranked top in Scotland and joint top in the UK in the most recent independent survey of research quality, the RAE 2008. The Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons has accredited the different courses in the programme. You will have access to our ‘virtual abattoir’, created to meet the need for veterinary students and others to understand the processes which take place in the slaughter of food animals for human consumption. Access to abattoirs for training purposes is increasingly difficult and the virtual abattoir takes you through each step of the process in order to maximise understanding and to ensure that you obtain most benefit from actual visits or work experience. You will have the opportunity to visit several establishments in the course of the programme. These include Scotbeef Abattoir and processing facility, Stirling Livestock Market, Scottish Water and the Microbiological reference laboratory. Guest lectures are given by representatives from some of these companies. You will be taught by academics who are considered to be producing work that is world-leading. This is the only programme offering a Master in Veterinary Public Health in Scotland and students enrol in January each year.

University of Liverpool

MSc Veterinary Science

Programme Description:

The MSc in Veterinary Science is a research-led programme delivered by the leading research groups in the School. It is based at the University's Leahurst Campus about 12 miles (19km) south of Liverpool in a rural area of the Wirral Peninsula. The MSc is a pathway-based programme that allows students to choose a pathway that best meets their interests. IT can be taken full time or part time and is open to graduates in veterinary medicine, appropriate life sciences and also to intercalating veterinary undergraduates who have completed three years of study. It can also be incorporated into some clinical training programmes (see Veterinary Clinical Training). The programme offers excellent research training and preparation for careers in veterinary science, industry, government and conservation. The aims of the Veterinary Science MSc programme are:- to provide advanced training in infectious disease, disease ecology and conservation and veterinary public health, so that graduates can play a major role in these disciplines, including policy development to equip graduates to play a key role in research, industry or government in priority areas such as food security and in vivo biology to foster and develop skills in veterinary and general research methodology to help students develop ‘real skills for the real world’ including communication, knowledge exchange, critical evaluation and analysis to foster understanding, development and application of policy, along with an appreciation of the global impact of the subject area The MSc was developed through integrating several excellent and internationally well-regarded programmes in order to provide greater choice and flexibility to students, who choose from a menu of credit-bearing modules to create their own pathways. The main pathways are :- Veterinary Parasitology Epidemiology Infection and Disease Control Infection and Immunity Conservation Science However, other pathways are also available, tailored to the needs of individual students, especially those taking the MSc part-time or combining it with a clinical training programme. Each pathway comprises ‘core’ modules directly related to that pathway plus optional modules that allow the student to some diversity of subject matter. Students following are expected to undertake a research project and placement in an area related to their chosen pathway.
