What makes us different?:
1. Experience and the career path
The School of Veterinary Medicine at CEU UCH has more than 20 years of experience in training veterinary professionals and was the first to teach studies of this kind in the Valencian Community.
Our School of Veterinary Medicine is a member of the EAEVE (European Association of Establishments for Veterinary Education). The EAEVE is the entity that brings together the best Veterinary Schools in Europe, and evaluates these schools through demanding procedures and recognizes those that exceed international quality standards with certification.
The School of Veterinary Medicine at CEU UCH has surpassed the two standards of evaluation set by the EAEVE, for that reason our School of Veterinary Medicine has "Full Accreditation" / certification of accreditation of high level of European quality. Among the more than one hundred Veterinary Schools across Europe, only 17 have this level of quality recognition, in Spain only our School and that of Complutense University of Madrid have achieved this level.
Being accredited by the EAEVE means that the veterinary studies which are taught in our School comply with the most stringent quality requirements established by the Education Committee of the European Union.
The School of Veterinary Medicine at CEU UCH is also a member of the IVSA (International Veterinary Student Association).
2. State-of-the-art facilities
From day one, you will have access to the Veterinary Clinical Hospital at the University. Within this facility you can study the cases referred to us by the veterinary clinics within the Valencian Community as your learning progresses, as well as participate actively in the duty shifts of the hospital services, which operate 24 hours a day. In addition, you will have access to the Teaching and Research Farm, where you can perform clinical practices with large animals, such as horses and cows, as well as practices related to animal handling, ethology and reproduction, in goats, sheep, birds, dogs and cats.
3. Professionals in the classroom
Because we understand that to be a good veterinarian you must be in contact with the best professionals in the field right from the start, so they can share their knowledge and put their experience into practice in the classroom.
4. Students at the heart of the action (during placements as well)
We have more than 1,000 places for external placements (many of them outside of Spain to guarantee an international experience for our students), with more than 400 tutors that will guide you in the final part of your learning. Examples of those who we have internship agreements with are, amongst others, the Bioparc and L'Oceanogràfic.
5. An international vocation
Students from different countries and nationalities spend time together in our classrooms. In fact, it is the only veterinary school in Spain with three linguistic strands (Spanish, French and English). And of course, everyone receives language support for free.
