International Relations

Due to the fact that the Vetmeduni Vienna is the only university for veterinary medicine in Austria, the international focus on teaching and research and the mobility of students and staff are naturally evident. National and international as well as inter- and trans-disciplinary cooperation and networking are of particular significance to the University of Veterinary Medicine, Vienna.

The International Relations Office (IRO) coordinates and manages all international activities at the University of Veterinary Medicine, Vienna. The IRO is part of the Vice-Rector's Office for Research and International Relations and also works closely with the Vice-Rector's Office for Study Affairs and Clinical Veterinary Medicine.
