Each academic year is divided into two semesters with a substantial winter and summer break. This programme is intensive, with students taking roughly 860 hour classes (60 ECTS) per year.
a) First year: Students develop a basic understanding of the life sciences underpinning veterinary medicine and become familiar with veterinary and medical terms. The main courses are animal anatomy, histology and embryology in order to help the student obtain profound knowledge of the composition of the animal body.
b) Second year: Students delve more deeply into the life sciences, particularly anatomy, physiology and veterinary immunology. In this year, students begin studying microbiology and learn about animal breeding and nutrition. The introduction to animal well-being and ethology helps mastering future clinical courses.
c) Thirdyear: Students have mastered all basic courses and enter the preclinical courses. Students are exposed to imaging diagnostics principles and focus on clinical diagnostics and public health protection.
d) Fourth year: Students continue practicing in the field, focusing on a variety of animals, from fish, accompanying animals to ruminants and swine.
