Embarking on a PhD in Veterinary Science offers candidates an exceptional opportunity to advance research in animal health, welfare, and disease control. These advanced degrees provide a comprehensive platform for students passionate about enhancing the lives of animals through scientific investigation.

Through PhDs in Veterinary Science, candidates engage in rigorous research projects that range from understanding complex diseases and developing new treatments to improving animal welfare and management practices. This path is not solely about academic pursuit; it's a commitment to pioneering positive change in veterinary medicine, contributing to the betterment of animal health, public health, and the environment.

Why complete a PhD in Veterinary Science?

A PhD in Veterinary Science presents students with an unparalleled opportunity to contribute to the field through original and impactful research. These programmes allow candidates to explore in depth areas such as infectious diseases, veterinary epidemiology, clinical veterinary science, and comparative medicine, among others.

By employing cutting-edge research methodologies and technology, doctoral candidates aim to address critical questions in veterinary medicine, leading to advancements in diagnostics, therapeutics, and preventive strategies. The research undertaken during these degrees not only advances veterinary science but also has broader implications for public health, food security, and environmental conservation, reflecting the integral role of veterinary science in a One Health approach.

In terms of employment, earning a PhD in Veterinary Science opens up a broad spectrum of career opportunities. Graduates are highly sought after in academia, where they can continue their research and teach the next generation of veterinarians and veterinary scientists. Beyond academia, PhD holders find rewarding careers in the pharmaceutical and biotechnology industries, where they contribute to the development of vaccines, drugs, and medical devices for animal health.

Governmental and non-governmental organisations also benefit from the expertise of veterinary scientists in areas such as disease control, animal welfare, and policy development. In addition, the specialised knowledge and research skills acquired through these programmes equip graduates to take on roles in wildlife conservation, zoo and aquarium management, and animal nutrition companies.

4-year PhD Studentship: Cats’ perspective and welfare associated with outdoor access

Although freedom of movement is a key pillar of animal welfare, and outdoor access is considered the best way to allow cats to exercise and express natural behaviours1, restrictions often apply to owned cats. Read more

4-year PhD Studentship: Assessing long-lasting pain following hot-iron disbudding in dairy calves

Although freedom from pain is a key pillar of animal welfare, painful procedures are still common on most dairy farms. For instance, despite being painful1, hot-iron disbudding is still performed on the vast majority of calves. Read more

4-year PhD Studentship: Antimicrobial resistance dynamics and antimicrobial use in wildlife rehabilitation facilities in the United Kingdom

Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) is one of the greatest global public health threats of the 21st century (Prestinaci et al. 2015). To mitigate this urgent challenge, a One Health approach (i.e., with integrated actions across the human, animal and environmental interface) is needed. Read more
