About

The RCVS Certificate in Advanced Veterinary Practice (Online Learning) from The University of Edinburgh is a flexible, modular approach to achieving veterinary postgraduate qualifications.

Overview

Credits are awarded by RCVS and not the University of Edinburgh, which means the programme is not eligible for a University of Edinburgh award.

You can design your own postgraduate certificate by choosing a combination of 10 credit elements that reflects your area of interest and are directly relevant to your work. As part of this consistent, flexible framework, you can choose modules from a number of accredited institutions in the UK.

You are also encouraged to support your study by undertaking appropriate continuing professional development (CPD) and working closely with a mentor or senior colleague with experience in the subject area and/or personal experience of undertaking veterinary postgraduate qualifications.

Career opportunities

Holders of the RCVS Certificate in Advanced Veterinary Practice (Online Learning) from The University of Edinburgh will have the qualities and transferable skills necessary for professional veterinary work. Candidates may elect to progress to a European Diploma following completion of the certificate

Programme Structure

The programme is structured to allow sequential progression through the A module (foundation skills), B module (core skills) and C modules (advanced skills). While it is recommended that the Certificate is taken in this way, it is also possible to take the modules in any order.

The Certificate can be taken over 10 years, with each module taking between 1-2 years. It is possible to complete the full programme (60 credit equivalent) in one year, though this will depend on the assessment timetable for each module.

For most candidates the usual route of study is:

  • A-FAVP, 10 credits = one year of study
  • B module, 10 credits = one year of study
  • C module (x4), 10 credits each = two years of study per module allowing time to gather cases etc
  • Synoptic assessment to achieve a designated certificate as required
