Course Summary

The Royal Veterinary College produces outstanding graduates who go on to work in some of the world’s leading scientific research institutes, as well as within industry and government. It is also one of the world's leading centres for postgraduate veterinary science study.

An RVC Master of Research (MRes) may be for you if you do not wish to commit to undertaking a PhD but want to try a sizeable research project and gain the generic skills applicable to research. You can do this over one-year full time, or over two years part-time while you are continuing your career.

The MRes is designed to equip you to acquire the experience and the skills needed to enter a PhD programme or to move on to careers where advanced research experience will help you. It is an excellent training opportunity for both biological and veterinary graduates and addresses both basic and clinical problems in the biosciences, with applications in veterinary and human medicine. Research areas span cell and molecular science, whole animal physiology and population medicine.

An RVC MRes will develop you as a scientist who is capable of working across interdisciplinary teams and who can tackle problems of practical relevance to veterinary and medical science. You will:

  • Learn from experts who produce cutting-edge research in a range of subjects and are published in the top academic journals
  • Join an international team of staff and students
  • Benefit from close proximity to other international centres of excellence in biomedical and biological sciences.
