Programme structure

This three year programme consists of an ensemble of courses related to the basic sciences (Biology, Chemistry, Mathematics, Physics), to Philosophy, Sciences common to the different branches of "living organisms" (Biochemistry, Genetics, Biostatistics, Microbiology, Immunology, General Histology, etc.) and the more specific veterinary sciences ( Anatomy, Embryology, Physiology, Histology and Ethology of domestic animals and Ethnography and Vegetal Biology related to breeding, etc.).
The proportion of specific veterinary courses increases progressively from the first to the third year of the bachelor's programme.
It is important to note that the vast majority of the theoretical sessions are complemented by practical exercises (TP) or by task-based periods. These "TP" take place in very well-equipped, modern teaching laboratories, in the presence of the lecturers or their assistants.
In the context of the language training focus, each year of the bachelor's programme integrates a block of periods in English, with the last session, in the 3rd year, including a presentation in English on a biological topic.
