Course Aims

The study of veterinary science requires an understanding of the basic principles of academic research and this course will provide an opportunity to conduct real-life research on a topic of interest to the student within the school’s four core research themes (being One Health and Emerging Infectious Diseases, Food Safety, Aquaculture and Animal Welfare).

The subject of this course consists of a clinical or clinically-related research project or other scientific endeavour, as selected by the student and approved by the course coordinators. Students may choose to identify and prepare a clinical case report (which must contribute significantly to the published literature), conduct original clinically-related research, or conduct a literature review of a standard suitable for submission for publication. Students are required to identify and confirm a research advisor and submit a proposed topic, research plan and budget. The investigation as a whole will be completed over two semesters, and Research Project II covers the completion phase of the investigation.
