During this elective course we introduce the students to some essential life skills, such as communication, entrepreneurial and digital skills. Essential skills not only for our everyday life but also for our professional careers. All students gain a comprehensive view of the scope, importance and necessity of life skills in veterinary education. The need for implementation of such skills in the curriculum has not only been accentuated in the years of the pandemic (2020, 2021), but highlighted the significance of an interdisciplinary approach involving veterinarians, psychologists, communication, educational and entrepreneurship experts as well as veterinary students. We emphasize the most common topics and competences that should enter the curriculum. Implementing new, non-professional skills into veterinary curricula is a difficult task but based on the feedback of the students one has to start somewhere and these competencies must be included in the undergraduate teaching.
