Calling all outstanding veterinary students

The Royal Veterinary College (RVC) is welcoming applications from bright and ambitious veterinary students from across the Commonwealth interested in enrolling—for free—in their MSc in Veterinary Epidemiology course, beginning in the academic year 2018/19.

Two prestigious full scholarships will be awarded to outstanding Commonwealth students at Europe’s leading veterinary school as part of the 2018 Commonwealth Shared Scholarship Scheme—and will cover travel to and from the UK, tuition fees and living allowance.

“To have two such scholarships allocated to one course is testament to the very high regard in which the MSc Veterinary Epidemiology course is valued internationally,” MSc Vet Epi course director Kim Stevens said.

“We are delighted to be able to welcome two brilliant students from the Commonwealth to fill these scholarship places.”

The RVC is passionate about enabling talented, motivated individuals from low and middle-income Commonwealth countries to participate in full-time master’s study, in particular, those who could not otherwise afford to study in the UK.

Students who embark on this MSc in Veterinary Epidemiology program—to be jointly delivered by leading veterinary epidemiologists from the RVC and the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine—will gain a fascinating insight into the work of the UK’s Department for Environment, Food & Rural Affairs and Animal and Plant Health Agency.

Visit the Commonwealth Scholarships website for information about selection criteria. Those who are eligible may then apply here. The deadline for applications is 16 April 2018.
