In 2021, the University of Veterinary Medicine and Pharmacy in Košice organized the 1st year of the Children's University of Veterinary Medicine and Pharmacy in Košice ("CHUVMP"). Children's universities across Europe and around the world served as an inspiration. The aim of these universities is to encourage young children to study beyond what is expected of them. The university combines knowledge from the world of veterinary medicine and pharmacy under the concept of "One World, One Health".
The mission of CHUVMP is to provide children aged 9 to 14 with further education and knowledge. The aim of the Children's University is to spark interest of children in the human-animal bond, to help them understand the value of their own health and stimulate their interest in higher education.
The main goal of the Children's University is to prepare a new generation of educated people who will shape the future of the society and make it more competitive.
By attending the Children's University, the children will spent their free time doing meaningful activities and cultivating their social skills.
