How to apply
These studentships are advertised annually on our studentships webpages and all applications must be made via the Online Portal. Applicants should select postgraduate certificate (PGCert) under taught courses and must indicate on their Personal Statement that they are applying for the Postgraduate Certificate Studentships in Veterinary Education. A curriculum vitae and covering letter should be attached. Any queries regarding the application process should be addressed to the Postgraduate Admissions Officer (e: firstname.lastname@example.org).
Further guidance on the application process
Applicants must hold a veterinary degree and be members of the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons. Prospective graduates will be considered, but all veterinary graduates MUST have their MRCVS number for application.
Graduates with less than 2 years post graduate clinical experience must include evidence that, as an undergraduate, they undertook at least 26 weeks of extramural clinical placements (outside the curriculum) or equivalent experience. Graduates from UK and Ireland do not need to provide this evidence since the degree is evidence of this requirement.
Graduates from the EU or EAA must be graduates from an EAEVE approved or accredited veterinary school to be eligible.
English language requirements:
If your first language is not English, we may require evidence of your competence in English. If evidence of competence is required we will accept:
IELTS: 7.5 (with no less than 7.0 in any element)
Applicants for the scholarships (interns) must be eligible for UK or EU higher education tuition fees.
