UNIC to create First Veterinary School in Cyprus

UNIC to create First Veterinary School in Cyprus

The University of Nicosia has announced an agreement with the Royal Veterinary College (RVC) to create Cyprus’ first veterinary school. 

This new initiative aims to deliver two new bachelor degrees in Veterinary Medicine in Cyprus. The University anticipates that its first class will commence in September 2020, with students choosing between a five-year course and a four-year accelerated course.

The agreement was confirmed by the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding between the two universities on Thursday 30th August, in London, by Professor Andreas Charalambous, Executive Dean of the University of Nicosia Medical School, and Professor Stuart Reid CBE, Principal of the RVC.

This new agreement between the two universities draws on the RVC’s position as one of the world’s leading veterinary institutions, and its 227 year track record in research, education and clinical service. The two universities will form a working committee with the aim of promoting and developing the relationship that will steer the new initiative.

Work will be carried out in Nicosia, with support from the RVC, to create a centre of excellence to address issues related to animal health, genetic improvement of livestock, links between the health of animals and humans, the improvement of food safety, and animal welfare.

Professor Andreas Charalambous, Executive Dean of the University of Nicosia Medical School: “The new Veterinary School in Cyprus will be modelled on the template of the University of Nicosia’s Medical School to ensure that it becomes a regional and international centre of education and research that follows international quality assurance criteria.” 

Professor Stavros Malas, Foundation Chair for the Veterinary School: “The new Veterinary School will also have significant economic and social benefits.  In addition to offering world-class education to  students, veterinarians will be offered opportunities for continuous professional development and farmers will be provided with  modern tools and knowledge required to maintain competitive farming units in a rapidly changing commercial environment   In our commitment to the One Health agenda, we will work closely with all stakeholders to improve the public’s awareness of animal rights and to protect and preserve a healthy ecosystem, which will safeguard the health of both animals and humans.”  

Professor Stuart Reid CBE, Principal of the RVC: “The RVC is delighted to be establishing a partnership with our colleagues in Cyprus and to contribute to the advance of animal health expertise in the region. We have a strong commitment to the One Health approach and together I am sure we can build on the success of the University of Nicosia’s Medical School to create an exceptional new veterinary programme.”

Professor Philippos Pouyioutas, Rector of the University of Nicosia: “The agreement and the new joint venture is in line with the University’s strategy for internationalization and for offering world-class education. We are honoured and delighted that RVC is now a partner university of the University of Nicosia. The new programmes, underlying research and the expected significant contribution to society will further support the University of Nicosia’s teaching, research and internationalization objectives.”
