Most of the Swedish education and research linked to farm and recreation animals is carried out within this faculty. We have the country's best competence within the area and no other educational institute can provide the same breadth and depth. The VH-faculty offers several of the most popular teaching programmes, e.g. veterinary medicine, animal science, ethology and animal welfare, animal caring science and equestrian science. In fact, half of the applications to study at SLU are to education programmes run by the VH-faculty. The departments within the faculty carry out research in basic biosciences as well as applied research into both production and sport and companion animals. The faculty is the only one in Sweden with the competence to carry out advanced, large-scale research with cattle, pigs, horses and poultry, as well as clinical research with these species and dogs and cats. Studies of animal diseases, their origins and modes of transmission can also lead to further understanding of human diseases. Read more ...
