    There are a significant number of veterinarians carrying out research of a high standard in the course of their professional work for whom this degree provides an opportunity to present their work and obtain a formal degree.  Eligibility is restricted, as the candidate must have either a University of Cambridge degree and an approved veterinary degree or hold an appointment at the Cambridge Veterinary School in addition to an approved veterinary degree.

    Research projects undertaken for the degree should be designed to build on candidates' veterinary expertise and professional experience.  The standard of work expected and the level of originality demanded is high, and the examinations procedure ensures that work is genuinely of doctoral standard.  Examination of the VetMD consists of the submission of a thesis of the research work and an oral examination on the subject of the thesis and the general field of knowledge within which it falls.

    One to one supervision

    The number of hours of formal supervision will vary depending on the individual, supervisor and project.   The University of Cambridge publishes an annual Code of Practice which sets out the University's expectations regarding supervision.

    Feedback

    Formal online feedback through supervisor reports, plus informal feedback as required.

    Assessment

    Thesis

    The examination of the VetMD consists of the submission of a thesis of the research work and an oral examination on the subject of the thesis and the general field of knowledge within which it falls.   The thesis must be no longer than 60,000 words.  These limits exclude figures, photographs, tables, appendices and bibliography.  

    The thesis cannot be submitted until four years have elapsed since the date of the candidate's admission to their approved veterinary degree.


    UK requirements for international applications

    Universities in the United Kingdom use a centralized system of undergraduate application: University and College Admissions Service (UCAS). It is used by both domestic and international students. Students have to register on the UCAS website before applying to the university. They will find all the necessary information about the application process on this website. Some graduate courses also require registration on this website, but in most cases students have to apply directly to the university. Some universities also accept undergraduate application through Common App (the information about it could be found on universities' websites).

    Both undergraduate and graduate students may receive three types of responses from the university. The first one, “unconditional offer” means that you already reached all requirements and may be admitted to the university. The second one, “conditional offer” makes your admission possible if you fulfill some criteria – for example, have good grades on final exams. The third one, “unsuccessful application” means that you, unfortunately, could not be admitted to the university of you choice.

    All universities require personal statement, which should include the reasons to study in the UK and the information about personal and professional goals of the student and a transcript, which includes grades received in high school or in the previous university.
