London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine
This is a joint programme provided by the School and the Royal Veterinary College (RVC). There is a shortage of trained veterinary epidemiologists and there are excellent career opportunities for graduates. This course provides training in essential methodological skills for the design, conduct, analysis, interpretation and communication of epidemiological studies; and surveillance and disease control in animal and human populations.
Funding opportunities can be found on the LSHTM website.
You will need the equivalent of a bachelor’s degree to undertake an MSc. This will usually require you to have a BSc degree or have completed the first three years of your veterinary or medical degree. More information on the LSHTM website.
