The Veterinary Medicine program from University of Zagreb is is designed as a combination of basic courses, preclinical and clinical veterinary subjects, which provide a broad education to every doctor of veterinary medicine.


During lectures, seminars/tutorials and practicals, students receive the necessary skills and techniques related to the selected studies in English, especially during seminars and practicals in which they acquire practical knowledge directly with the help of university teachers and prominent experts in veterinary practice. In order to easily master the work techniques and get quickly involved in the business practice and professional performance of tasks for which they have been preparing during the study, attention has been given to mandatory practical training of participants during the two final years of the study, which is carried out in appropriate facilities and institutions.

Continuous modernization of working and teaching spaces, laboratories and clinics resulted in an increased interest of foreign students, participants in postgraduate specialist studies and in the owners’ selection of the Faculty as the location for the treatment of their companion animals and farm animals. The Faculty has so far become well-defined as a regionally recognizable institution in the field of education and professional-clinical work.

The Veterinary Medicine programme

Upon enrolment in the fifth year of study, students have the option to choose between one of the three study tracks:

Small Companion Animals (SCA)

The course content in the existing three study tracks within the study program covers numerous current gains and follows developmental dynamics that are distributed in the framework of various academic sub-disciplines. They are designed to encourage the real interest of students for one of the selected fields of veterinary profession as well as their creativity. The selected study track provides them with essential theoretical knowledge and all the essential practical applications and skills in each of the selected segments of veterinary activity, as well as activities that are associated with it.
