The Faculty of Veterinary Medicine of the University of Liege

The Faculty of Veterinary Medicine of the ULiège is the only one in French-speaking Belgium to organise the entire course of veterinary studies, from the bachelor's degree to the doctorate, including the masters and specialisation masters. It is therefore the only one in charge of the clinical training of future veterinary doctors in the Walloon-Brussels Federation.

Founded in 1832, located in Cureghem, integrated into the University of Liège (state university) since 1969, the Faculty has been located on the Sart Tilman campus in Liège since 1991.

It welcomes 1600 students.

It is active in research, particularly through the FARAH (Fundamental and Applied Research for Animals & Health) faculty research unit.

It is composed of three clinics and associated emergency services: Equines - Ruminants/Pigs and Pets.

The new University Veterinary Clinic for Companion Animals, the result of an €18 million investment completed in 2019, treats 12,000 animals each year.

The Faculty is a member and is accredited by the AEEEV (Association of European Veterinary Educational Institutions).
