By the academic year 2001/02, the arrangement of the course of degree in Veterinary Medicine has been modified according to a new government law and in agreement with the suggestions of the European Union. The new arrangement has been established for the student of the 1st year of the Course in October 2001; beginning with October 2002, the full five-years course has been fully established for all the students. The following data applies to the current didactic arrangment (years 2nd to 5th). For more detailed informations, please have a look at the much more comprehensive italian Homepage of the Faculty. Every year the italian Ministry of Instruction, University and Research - at the suggestion of the Faculty Council - determines the number of students to be admitted to the first year of study, according to the available resources of the Faculty. Usually the number of applicants exceeds the maximum allowed, therefore candidates are selected through an entrance examination. This is usually based on written multiple-choice test with questions on different basic topics, such as physics, chemistry, biology, mathematics and general culture.
