You will be participating in an innovative training programme which integrates academic learning with the acquiring of professional veterinary skills.
There is no requirement for you to know Spanish before you start your studies but clearly, you will have to learn the language not only for classes but also to manage relationships with pets' owners and farmers in the local community.
Spanish language lessons will be provided in the first two years and when you start to follow your veterinary studies in Spanish, for the first semester you will be learning with other international students. From the start of the third year you will be together with students who have studied the first two years in Spanish and French, thus in a truly international learning environment.
There is no entrance exam for this course. Students will be accepted purely on the basis of their A level grades and an informal interview.
