Veterinary Medicine and Science taught courses

The School of Veterinary Medicine and Science provides a diverse, vibrant and stimulating environment for research. The school undertakes innovative clinical and basic science research on many key aspects of companion animals and livestock health and production. This involves a diverse range of scientific disciplines including pathology, molecular biology, biochemistry, immunology, microbiology, physiology and bioinformatics.

This year the school, based at the Sutton Bonington Campus, is offering exciting MPhil/PhD opportunities to research students. The University is internationally recognised for research in the medical, agricultural, biological, and food sciences, and students registered for a research degree within the School will work alongside internationally renowned scientists while developing new knowledge in specialist areas. 

The research interests of academic members of staff are wide-ranging and span from molecular biology to animal welfare. 

Research at the school is organised into five main research themes:

Animal infection and immunity

Elucidating mechanisms of infection, host immune responses and the exploitation of host-pathogen interactions for the prevention and treatment of infection. 

Animal population health and welfare

Documenting and modelling endemic disease in animals with a view to improving animal welfare and disease prevention and management.

Comparative medicine

Investigating the pathogenesis and management of naturally-acquired or induced diseases in animals as models of disease in man. 

Reproductive biology

Studying all aspects of reproductive biology including the impact of the foetal environment on post-natal development.

Veterinary educational research

Capitalising on the establishment of a new veterinary school by investigating the impact of a novel curriculum and different methods of delivery on learning outcomes.


We offer a number of postgraduate research opportunities to students who have graduated with a first or upper second class degree in a variety of undergraduate subjects such as veterinary science, equine science, biology, zoology, biochemistry, physiology, biomedical sciences, microbiology, and statistics, as well as medical degrees.
