Bioveterinary Science at Lincoln provides students with the opportunity to research the science that underlies animal health and disease.
This could include the processes surrounding animal health; life histories of pathogens and parasites; infection and immunity; preventative measures, or diagnosis and treatments.
Students of MPhil/PhD Bioveterinary Science at University of Lincoln can benefit from training courses provided by the University to develop key skills in research.
Under the guidance and advice of their PhD supervisors, students will be encouraged to present talks and seminars on their work both at the University of Lincoln as well at national and international meetings and conferences.
Under the guidance of your PhD supervisors students will also be expected to produce progress reports, develop their ability to write up work for publication in peer-reviewed journals, and ultimately to effectively communicate their research and thesis.
Each student will have at least one monthly formal meeting with their supervisors where progress will be discussed. After three months students are expected to provide an outline of their research proposal, which will be evaluated. After the first year they may apply for transfer to a PhD programme via a written report and they will be orally examined.
Both the MPhil and PhD are awarded based on the quality of a student’s thesis and ability to present and successfully defend their chosen research topic in an oral examination (viva voce). They are also expected to demonstrate how their research findings have contributed to knowledge or developed existing theory or understanding.
