PhD Programme

 
 

The PhD programme of the Vetmeduni Vienna is a three year lasting postgraduate study providing highly qualified graduate students a comprehensive scientific education in veterinary science and/or life sciences to become competitive junior scientists.

Research conducted by PhD Candidates is supervised by qualified senior scientists who are internationally recognized specialists in their field.

A guided and supervised internationally reviewed research project is the main focus of the Vetmeduni Vienna PhD, resulting in excellent peer-reviewed publications and forming the basis of a PhD thesis which is presented and defended as the final step toward the PhD once the required coursework has been completed.

The Vetmeduni Vienna Campus is extremely dynamic and highly multidisciplinary offering research areas ranging from veterinary science, human-animal-interactions, to vaccine development and cancer therapy.
