Most courses in the Master of Veterinary Medicine (MVM) programme are offered once every second year. Exceptions are the capstone courses (118.851, 118.852, 118.853), Emergency Medicine (118.761) and the epidemiology courses (118.785 and 118.786) which are offered every year.
The duration of most courses is 24 teaching weeks over two semesters (7 to 8 months total):
Exceptions are the epidemiology courses, which are single semester (either February–June or July–November), and business courses which are approximately 3 months.
For every course you pass, you receive a certificate of completion.
We advise you to enrol early in the enrolment period since student numbers are limited to 30. Early enrolment also ensures that you receive study materials before the course starts. Learn how to enrol
