Welcome to the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine!

The six-year training programme in veterinary medicine offers both a diverse basic education in veterinary medicine and biology (Bachelor’s Programme in Veterinary Medicine) and a degree leading to the profession of a veterinarian (Degree Programme in Veterinary Medicine).

During the studies, students will acquire the abilities required for practicing veterinary medicine and working as self-employed veterinarians, following developments in the field and engaging in life-long learning. Education in veterinary medicine opens many different career paths to those interested in both animal and human health.
