Sam Morgan, DVM – 2017
“I won’t lie, it was hard work but very much worth all the effort. The teaching at UVMP in Košice was very ‘hands on’ and we got a huge amount of practical experience thanks to the small practical group sizes and the large array of practical classes. The teachers are friendly and try their hardest to allow you to get experience in the fields you are interested in. With the main university clinics being on site it is easy to get to see many common and specialist procedures. The time spent in Košice has been brilliant and I would not hesitate to do it all again!”

Rachel Muir, DVM – 2017
“I didn't choose veterinary as a career until I happened to visit a friend who was studying at the UVMP in Košice. I fell in love with the beautiful campus and friendly, multicultural atmosphere of the university dormitories. It was plain to see how much experience with animals we would receive just by exploring the campus, let alone all the other farms that the university collaborates with. I graduated with no regrets and would highly recommend it to anyone with a sense of adventure and determination.”

Shay Yardeny, DVM – 2018

“After a warm and welcoming tour of the university, I joined the 4-year programme offered at the UVMP in Košice. Although intense and challenging, the curriculum includes many hands-on opportunities and the small class setup truly offers invaluable student–teacher interaction. I had a wonderful experience and would strongly recommend this programme. I already deeply miss Košice and its many relaxing coffee places.”
