Barry Robinson, Australia, studied the 240-hour individual modules:

I chose to enrol in the individual modules as a way to supplement a master’s degree in veterinary public health undertaken at the University of Sydney. I was impressed by the individual modules offered by RVC. They were complete, self- contained, up-to-date and relevant. I have been able to apply skills acquired in spatial analysis when investigating outbreaks on prawn farms, leading to the development and implementation of control strategies on-farm.
