MSc Wild Animal Health

Royal Veterinary College

MSc Wild Animal Health

This world-class specialist Masters Course (with exit points at Certificate and Diploma) has produced over 190 graduates since its inception in 1994. It provides qualified veterinarians with a depth of knowledge of the management of wild animals and the epidemiology, treatment and control of disease.

Over the last 30 years, interventions, for reasons of health, welfare and the conservation, of free-living wild animals have been undertaken with increasing frequency. Specialist veterinary expertise is required in order to assess and control diseases in wildlife.

Emerging infectious diseases are also recognised as a serious hazard both for wild animals, and for the domestic animal and human populations that interact with these species. In addition, a large number of wild animal species are kept in captivity; in zoos and in laboratories, which has led to an increased demand for specialist skills and knowledge.

Participants of this course graduate with the analytical skills, the understanding, the confidence and the language to influence thinking and policy making within organisations.

The Shared Scholarship is a joint initiative between the Commonwealth Scholarship Commission (with funding from DFID), the Royal Veterinary College, as part of the British aid programme to developing countries.

In 2012/13, two awards are available to applicants for the MSc Wild Animal Health/Biology, MSc Control of Infectious Diseases in Animals and MSc Veterinary Epidrmiology. Funding covers full costs of an award holder's study in the UK (fees) including airfares.
