About the Office
The Faculty of Veterinary Medicine (hereinafter: the VF) at the University of Ljubljana has a rich and long history of international cooperation. After the founding of the VF in 1990, as an independent member of the University of Ljubljana, it quickly became involved with similar institutions in neighboring countries and more widely in Europe. In 1992 the VF joined the European Association of Veterinary Education (EAEVE), which is responsible for the quality, development and promotion of veterinary education in Europe. EAEVE encourages cooperation between members, especially in the development and improvement of teaching at veterinary colleges. One of the main goals of EAEVE is to develop common minimum standards that must be met by a university programme to achieve recognition of the title of Doctor of Veterinary Medicine and monitoring their implementation. EAEVE works with the Federation of Veterinarians of Europe (FVE), to bring together practitioners in the development of standards. EAEVE conducted the first external evaluations of the study programme in 1992.
In 1994 the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine participated in the establishment of a network of veterinary colleges in Central and Southeastern Europe under the auspices of the CEEPUS III programme (https://www.ceepus.info/default.aspx). Veterinary universities and faculties from Vienna, Brno, Ljubljana, Budapest and Kosice have joined the VetNEST (Veterinary Network for Student and Staff Transfer) network. Later, as full members, faculties from Zagreb and Wroclaw joined the network, while those from Sarajevo, Skopje and Tirana have the status of associate members. Based on an external evaluation by the European Association of Establishments for Veterinary Education (EAEVE), the condition for full membership is the confirmed adoption of European standards of veterinary studies, which the latter three aforementioned faculties have not yet achieved. Since its establishment, exchanges of students and teachers have been taking place intensively. Funding comes from the CEEPUS project. The main activities are focused on the implementation of student internships and exchanges for students, teacher exchanges, organisation of joint thematic workshops, professional excursions, and above all, the quality of the pedagogical process. Based on realisation of the planned activities, the network ranks among the top CEEPUS thematic networks.
The Faculty of Veterinary Medicine is also very active in the field of the Erasmus+ programme. For the current period 2014-2020, the faculty has already signed more than 30 agreements with foreign universities, which provides students with the opportunity to gain experience through semester or year-long study exchanges, as well as several months of practical training. The doors are also open to foreign students, who are accepted with open arms, and whose numbers are increasing year by the year.
