Providing distance learning courses, as part of the University of London International Programmes, is a challenging but very rewarding role. We have students from all over the world and our team works very hard to ensure that we offer them programmes that are of an academically high standard and relevant to the contemporary needs of livestock farming and veterinary medicine. It’s a wonderfully rewarding experience to see our students successfully completing their courses and graduating.

Graduates of the programme will receive two documents: a final diploma 'parchment' and a diploma supplement. The final diploma will show the award of a University of London Worldwide Degree, with the Royal Veterinary College as the Lead College involved. The diploma supplement will describe the nature, level and content of the programme that has been successfully completed. The MSc, Postgraduate Diploma and Postgraduate Certificate are placed at Level 7 of the Framework for Higher Education Qualifications. The offering includes an MSc, Postgraduate Diploma, Postgraduate Certificate and Individual Modules in Livestock Health and Production.

Virtual Learning Environment (VLE)

Our Virtual Learning Environment, known as RVC Learn, enables you to communicate with your fellow distance learning students, discuss issues concerning your studies, and participate in occasional online tutorials and webinars (approximately 2 per year) with tutors at set times. Learn allows you to access the RVC Intranet, the RVC Community and the Library area, where you may access electronic journals. It also provides access to study materials and a student discussion forum.


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).
