+Career Prospects
  • Veterinarians have a wide range of options when it comes to job roles.
  • They can take care of domestic animals, work in the field of exotic species pathology, or apply for public health, disease control and research programs.
  • Large farms and food manufacturing facilities are also in need of experts, as the industry continues to expand to meet global food production needs.
  • It is for these reasons that veterinarians are well paid.
  • In the UK, acclaimed veterinarians make up to £55,000 a year (€64,250).
  • In the USA, the average annual salary of a veterinary practitioner is $80,000 (£45,114).
  • In Canada, it ranges from $90,000 to $100,000 (£48,910 to £54,378) per year.
+Fees – Costs
  • Traditional academic destinations such as the UK and the USA have high university tuition fees and a high cost of living.
  • Undergraduate veterinary programs in the UK cost £9,000 (€10,500) annually.
  • Veterinary studies in the USA may be even more expensive, up to $20,000 (£11,795) per year.
  • In Eastern Europe and specifically in Bulgaria and Romania, the quality of education rivals that of the universities in the UK and the USA.
  • However, the tuition fees and living expenses are much lower meaning that studying veterinary medicine abroad in Eastern Europe has become a very attractive option.
+Universities
  • Eastern European universities provide their graduates with a highly qualitative entrance-free program of studies (conditions may apply).
  • These studies are based on practice rather than theory and the full range of qualifications expected by EU veterinary practitioners.
  • Students can study veterinary medicine in Europe in English at Romanian and Bulgarian universities, while maintaining reasonable annual tuition fees.
  • These degrees are acknowledged globally and are listed in the WHO (World Health Organization) and the FAIMER (Foundation for Advancement of International Medical Education and Research) directories of international medical schools.
  • They are also listed with the IMED (International Medical Education Directory) and the AVICENNA directories, the global public databases of medical schools.
  • Graduates are eligible to seek employment in any EU country and in most countries worldwide. Veterinary students may also transfer into a Romanian or Bulgarian university thorough the ECTS (European Credits Transfer System), as long as they have completed at least one year of studies at any accredited institution.
