Mission Statement

Our utmost responsibility is to provide an education that the veterinary profession requires, and we must do it in a safe environment even in the pandemic. We do our best to make our school a safe place for students and staff as well. We implemented safety regulations based on the epidemiological nature of the virus considering national, global best practices, and available recommendations.

Medical type of education requires high-level manual skills. Lots of hands on experience is crucial to becoming a successful veterinarian after graduation.

Decreasing the number of practical hours could lead to delayed graduation that we certainly want to avoid.

To fulfill our mission we need full cooperation and responsible behavior from our students as well.

 

Recognizing the hardship COVID-19 has brought to the lives of students, we are making efforts to keep you updated, and to provide you with up-to-date info about campus life. Most international students have filled out a fresh survey – your contribution is greatly appreciated – that clarified what areas of student life you struggle with. It called us to act now, and that is what we intend to do!

We have created a brand new e-mail comm. channel where we try to answer your COVID-19 related questions and help you sort out problems: [Click to see email] Please, use this address for your questions.

We opened another channel for you to provide us with ideas what you’d like to see on the website: Google Form

We appreciate any contribution.

Keep in mind student support and personal services are also open for you to schedule 1:1 online confidential meeting with the UNI’s student counselor for personal issues.

Academic/education support for UNIVET students:

Difficult times call for innovative approaches (we know our students are very resourceful to grasp the vast material of the lectures and subjects) We would like to invite you to think about forming online-study-groups or study-buddy relations. This site helps you to find some ideas:
