The degree programme in Veterinary Medicine is designed to equip graduates with competences in:
- the provision of medical assistance with animal husbandry;
- the prevention and treatment of infectious and parasitic animal diseases;
- the protection of public health from diseases which can be transmitted from animals to humans;
- the testing of foods of animal origin;
- the protection of ecological balance and wildlife heritage.
The degree programme offers students sufficient training to operate in the veterinary field (animal health, foods, environment and animal welfare) within the National Health Service, upon successful completion of the relevant specialisation qualifications, both in Local Health Authorities and in Experimental Veterinary Preventive Medicine Institutes.
Graduates can also pursue freelance work in these fields, in relation to the zootechnical industry (fodder, supplements, genetic selection and husbandry development), the pharmaceutical industry (consultancy and technical support, research and development, regulation and recording) and the food industry (production hygiene, processing technologies and the management of the production of foods of animal origin).
It also covers areas more traditionally associated with the veterinary profession, namely veterinary clinics and on-site treatment, surgical and veterinary obstetrics and gynaecology in productive livestock and pets, in addition to the more innovative fields of behavioural science. Other career opportunities can also be pursued in international organisations, within the European Community or within the sphere of cooperation and development.
Application and admission: Limited enrolment with admission test.
The degree programme in Veterinary Medicine allows you to spend 3 to 9 months abroad under the Erasmus+ project. All credits earned at the host university will be recognized by your home university. We have numerous exchange agreements with foreign faculties in the Iberian Peninsula (Barcelona, Leon, Santiago de Compostela, Zaragoza, Madrid, Cordoba, Porto and Lisbon), in Austria (Vienna), Germany (Munich), Belgium (Ghent), France (Paris) and Romania (Cluj Napoca and Timisoara).
You can apply as early as your second year and follow all third-, fourth- and fifth-year courses abroad, taking the relevant exams. Erasmus+ is a good opportunity to earn credits associated with practical and vocational activities such as internships and optional programmes. A few months before departure, you will meet the degree programme's Erasmus tutor to define the courses / practicals to be undertaken abroad and fill in the Learning Agreement.
Upon return, the credits earned abroad will be assessed with the tutor and recognized by the Interdepartmental Academic Board.
Under the Erasmus+ Placement project, you can do an internship abroad even at the end of your degree programme or during the first year after graduation. Placement grants support work internships at research centres or veterinary clinics, which will help you develop an international approach and often open up interesting job opportunities. The degree programme in Veterinary Medicine has also joined other internationalisation programmes such as Erasmus Mundus Sigma Agile, under which it hosts students from the Balkans.
