The Course

Summary

This course graduates find that the international recognition and prestige of their degree opens doors and creates opportunities in their careers. We understand the difficulties many people face with full-time study and have joined forces with the University of London International Programmes, to offer study by distance learning. The offering includes an MSc, Postgraduate Diploma and Postgraduate Certificate. The programme aims to provide you with: an understanding of the role of veterinary epidemiology and economics in the design and delivery of effective livestock services; knowledge of risk analysis approaches in food safety and how human health can be protected through control of zoonotic diseases; skills in basic and advanced statistical methods in order to undertake epidemiological investigations and disease modelling.

The programme aims to provide animal health specialists, scientists and public health specialists with an understanding of the conceptual basis of veterinary epidemiology and public health. Our graduates find that the international recognition and prestige of their degree opens doors and creates opportunities in their careers. Graduates of the programme are employed in a variety of organisations including the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra), university veterinary faculties and international organisations including the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) and World Health Organization (WHO).
