Faculty of Veterinary Medicine

One of the leading veterinary medicine faculties in Europe and ranked in the top ten world-wide.

The School of Veterinary Medicine at Utrecht, as a part of the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine at Utrecht University, is the only place in the Netherlands where veterinarians are trained. The Faculty of Veterinary Medicine (and thus the School of Veterinary Medicine) is the centre of expertise and point of reference for veterinary issues for the entire country, and increasingly for the world abroad as well. Our activities include providing primary health and welfare care for a variety of types of animals, monitoring food safety and the prevention of zoonoses (diseases transferable from animals to humans).
