Graduate Admissions

The student will perform a research project in veterinary medicine, veterinary science or a biological science, and during the course of the year will also prepare a literature review in the subject of their research project and present the project in talks and/or posters to a Departmental audience. There are opportunities to present at external scientific meetings for many students. Students will be expected to take training courses in specialist areas as appropriate. Examination is entirely based on the dissertation presented at the end of the year.

Learning Outcomes

By the end of the programme, students will have:

  • a comprehensive understanding of techniques, and a thorough knowledge of the literature, applicable to their own research;
  • demonstrated originality in the application of knowledge, together with a practical understanding of how research and enquiry are used to create and interpret knowledge in their field;
  • shown abilities in the critical evaluation of current research and research techniques and methodologies; and
  • demonstrated self-direction and originality in tackling and solving problems, and acting autonomously in the planning and implementation of research.

Continuing

Continuation from MPhil to PhD is possible although it is not automatic. All cases are judged on their own merits based on a number of factors including evidence of progress and research potential; a sound research proposal; the availability of a suitable supervisor, full funding and resources required for the research; and acceptance by the Head of Department and the Degree Committee.
