|"I gained a huge amount from this paper and am enjoying using what I learned in practice. I will definitely consider doing more papers in the future."|
All our courses are taught by distance/online. Each course has a three-day non-compulsory contact workshop in Palmerston North. If you cannot attend in person, you can use interactive technologies, to interact with the class and lecturer online (practical sessions not included). Most lectures are streamed live and recorded for later review.
|"These courses jump-start me to review subjects in a more systematic and sustainable manner—hopefully well beyond the duration of the courses."|
Taught courses are offered every second year with the exception of the following courses offered annually
Research reports (Capstone courses) (118.851, 118.852, 118.853) are offered each year over Semester 1&2.
For every course you pass, you receive a certificate of completion.
Choose any course you want or select specific courses towards a Companion Animal, Companion Animal Surgery , Production Animal or Veterinary Business Administration MVM.

|" These papers are excellent to brush up on areas you feel rusty in, explore an area of interest, or just a great way to get a post-grad qualification while working."|
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
