This programme is modified from our highly successful Intercalated BSc in Veterinary Pathology programme which ran from 2000-2012 supported by the Wellcome Trust. 124 students completed the original Intercalated Veterinary Pathology Programme, with a 100% pass rate; over 50% of these completing with a first class degree.

After graduating from their respective veterinary degrees, the majority of our students have gone on to undertake fascinating post-graduate training that has given them greatly enhanced career prospects.

The new programme builds on this successful model but offers an increased choice with a core module in Veterinary Pathology and two optional modules in Infection and Immunity or Disease Investigation.

The intercalated programme is designed to stimulate individual curiosity at the boundaries of research in pathology. It is less structured and more student centred. While veterinary undergraduate courses provides adequate pathologic information to support subsequent clinical studies, this degree focuses and expands on the subject in a way which will support subsequent pathology oriented careers through first-class small group teaching and innovative research projects.

Programme Structure

During the programme you will learn, among other things, to develop an understanding of the disease process in animals and how it is assessed at the molecular level, in the cell, the organ, and the whole animal and to develop an ability to interpret abnormal events seen in pathology. All of which is designed to produce graduates who have the knowledge and skills to make a significant contribution to animal and human health and welfare.
