About The University Of Veterinary Medicine

The University of Veterinary Medicine is the only veterinary school in Hungary. It is a state institution supervised and financed by the Ministry of Education and Culture and is accredited to issue the diplomas of Doctor of Veterinary Medicine (D.V.M.), Bachelor of Science (BSc) in Biology, and the postgraduate degree of Philosophiae Doctor (Ph.D.) in veterinary sciences.

The English-language program at the University of Veterinary Science was instituted in 1992 for students with a working knowledge of English.

In 1995, the veterinary school was internationally accredited by the European Association of Establishments for Veterinary Education (E.A.E.V.E.). The Accreditation Report concludes: "The University of Veterinary Science can claim a proud position among its European counterparts. Its young graduates need not be afraid to compete with their European colleagues for their knowledge and practical skills."

The University of Veterinary Medicine campus is located in the central area of Budapest, near to one of the main railway and subway stations, easily accessible by public transport. The main Field Station of the Faculty is located in Üllő, ca. 10 km from the boundary of the city.

It comprises an Experimental Institute for biotechnology, a living gene bank for the preservation of old Hungarian breeds of farm animals, horse stables with a riding school and hippodrome, and a Large Animal Clinic opened in Summer 2001.

Besides the daily routine work, the Clinic is used for practical training. The University operates a shuttle service between the Campus and the Field Station. In 2006 a new up-to-date Small Animal Clinic was opened to provide students, staff, and clients with 21st-century facilities for diagnostics and treatment.
