Below we would like to share with you our latest and most important news of the University of Veterinary Medicine Budapest (UNIVET Budapest).
UNIVET has gone online: the education of future veterinarians continues
The worldwide emergence of the coronavirus has necessitated several preventive measures that affect our University. The leadership of our institution pays special attention to the observance of precautionary measures and keeps our students, colleagues and guests well informed since the protection of our health is a priority.
Hungary has a low incidence of coronavirus compared to most European countries and worldwide. Our University takes and abides by all measures recommended by health organizations and the Government of Hungary.
One of the most effective ways to prevent the coronavirus is to limit the number of social contacts in dense indoor areas, for which reason our University has switched to online education. The education of future veterinarians has been going on uninterrupted for 233 years, and despite the changed circumstances, the University’s lecturers and staff continue to provide high-quality education.
As of today, our University has a database of 682 online available course materials which is constantly growing! In our next newsletter we will share a short video about our online courses.
