You can study in Massey University’s Master of Veterinary Medicine (MVM) programme if you meet the entry requirements below. All the requirements are straightforward, and most students meet them with little or no trouble. We can advise you if you're not sure.
We also recommend that you are working as a veterinarian when you enter this continuing-education programme. The programme is intended to extend practicing veterinarians' knowledge rather than retrain those wishing to return to practice.
A MVM Certificate of Proficiency allows you to complete one or two 700 level taught courses to help you establish whether online study is a good fit for you. Other qualifications include the MVM Postgraduate Certificate of Science and Technology (PGCertScTech) (60 credits) and an MVM Postgraduate Diploma in Veterinary Science (PGDipVSc) (120 credits). The highest-level qualification is the Master of Veterinary Medicine (MVM) (120 credits, which includes an 800 level research report or practicum).
Enrolling is a two-step process, you will need to choose one of these qualifications and then choose your course/s. You can contact us for help at any time. Feel free to contact us when you have enrolled.
You can study in Massey’s MVM programme if you meet any of the following requirements.
From Canada, Australia, the US and Ireland, to Singapore and Thailand, veterinarians from all over the world have studied towards the Master of Veterinary Medicine.
