Our online Equine Science programme at the Royal (Dick) School of Veterinary Studies is the first and only to be mounted within an international centre of veterinary excellence.
Delivered through our online learning environment, our programme gives students detailed knowledge and understanding of equine science and its applications.
It is also excellent preparation for future independent research or a PhD programme.
Graduates from this research-rich, taught MSc will be prepared for employment in research establishments, such as universities and research institutions; industry, such as feed companies, stud farms, pharmaceuticals and consultancy firms; government organisations, such as ADAS and DEFRA; and welfare organisations such as the RSPCA, WSPA and LPH.
The taught part of the programme consists of a series of courses, while the final year is devoted to a dissertation.
Certificate and Diploma courses:
Your final year dissertation of a maximum of 9,000 words will allow you to analyse and present relevant research data that you have collected yourself. Alternatively, you can undertake desk study to explore and develop your own area of interest.
Always verify the dates on the programme website.
