Why an RVC/ZSL Masters in Wild Animal Biology?
Wild animal health has become increasingly popular amongst non-veterinarians with a first degree in zoology and biology. Recognising this, the RVC, together with the Zoological Society of London, London have developed a unique course, aimed at non-veterinary biological science graduates and leading to the MSc in Wild Animal Biology.
Applications for entry to the MSc and PG Diploma in 2013 have now closed. Applications for the the PG Certificate are still open.
This unique course provides practical exposure to wild animal species and an understanding of their health and welfare as well as providing training in research methodologies relevant to the study of wildlife.
Participants benefit from working and studying alongside veterinary graduates taking the MSc in Wild Animal Health as well as learning from internationally renowned experts in their field.
