The University of Veterinary Medicine and Pharmacy in Košice (Slovak: Univerzita veterinárneho lekárstva v Košiciach) is the only institution in the Slovak Republic offering higher education in the field of veterinary medicine. It has been providing the veterinary education in English language for 15 years. Nowadays the University offers two English study programmes: 6-year degree programme for secondary school graduates and 4-year degree post-BSc. programme for bachelors in agricultural, veterinary or biological sciences, both leading to the degree of Doctor of Veterinary Medicine (DVM).

The DVM qualification was recognised and accredited by the EAEVE European Association of Establishments for Veterinary Education in 1996 and 2002. Students receiving a DVM degree from UVM Kosice, are entitled to automatic membership of the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons (RCVS) upon returning to the UK, and can thereby practice veterinary medicine in the UK [1] .
