    Programme Description

    The Centre for Tropical Veterinary Medicine was the first entity of its kind in the developed world to be dedicated to research and training in animal health and welfare in developing countries. Building on a 30-year track record in teaching and research, the MSc in International Animal Health has been developed to meet the strong demand for training in pathogenesis, epidemiology, diagnosis and control of infectious animal diseases (including zoonoses).

    Our mission is to equip animal health professionals with the expert skills needed to make a full contribution towards tackling the international animal health challenges of the 21st century. In particular we value the intercultural and cross-boundary opportunities for exchange of ideas and knowledge that this programme will generate.
