Who is it for?

The overall aim of this interdisciplinary summer school is to train students in animal welfare, veterinary ethics, law and communication skills to better identify, structure, deal and communicate the challenges of their future work life. By means of a highly interdisciplinary teaching approach, the summer school aims to contribute to the VetNEST members’ curricula as an elective course and allow veterinary students to gain knowledge on various topics and methodologies within a total of 15 hours of lecturing/questions answer sections + 10 hours preparatory work for each student (1 ECTS credits).


The University of Veterinary Medicine Vienna (Vetmeduni), founded in 1765 by Empress Maria Theresa, is the only academic institution for veterinary education and research in Austria and the oldest in the German-speaking world.
