Specialisation schools are activated on a three year-based cycle.
Admission is regulated by a written and verbal test evaluating the overall performance of candidates in their postgraduate studies and the specific knowledge of the program they wish to access. Based on the test results, the first classified might receive a state funded grant for the 3 years of the program. Some programs are granted funding by state orprivate companies. The other students are enrolled “part time” and do not receivegrants, nor salaries. The specialisation schools give practical and theoretical training and attendance is compulsory. After the three year course, veterinarians are requiredto present a short thesis on practical work performed in a 6 month period of trainingthat may be performed outside the university in the specific field of interest.
