Please note: The MSc (Tropical Animal Health) has been discontinued.
The last intake of students for this degree was in January 2015. As from January 2016, it has been replaced by the MSc (Tropical Animal Health), which is a collaborative degree between the Department of Veterinary Tropical Diseases and the Institute of Tropical Medicine, Antwerp, Belgium.
The online modular MSc (Animal/Human/Ecosystem Health) is applicable to health professionals and decision or policy makers.
