University of Edinburgh offers free MOOC in ‘How to be a Vet’

The Royal School of Veterinary Studies at Edinburgh University is offering potential Veterinary students a chance to gain an insight into what it is like to enrol in a veterinary degree through a free ‘Mass Open Online Course’ (MOCC). Their MOCC ‘Do you have what it takes to be a Veterinarian’ is running in May and would be of interest to anyone who is interested in taking a degree in Veterinary Medicine. The free online course offers participants a taster of some of the courses offered in the first year of a veterinary degree. Other MOCC courses available through the school include ‘Equine Nutrition’ and ‘Animal Welfare’. All courses can be found on the Coursera website, www.coursera.org/edinburgh
