Certificate of Advanced Studies (CAS) in Veterinary Medicine

How to apply?

Winter Semester Start Application Period

1st – 31st May of the respective year

Summer Semester Start Application Period

1st – 31st October of the preceding year
The Certificate program (CAS) and the Master program (MAS) are the two continuing education options ESAVS provides. The CAS is ideal for candidates who want to enhance their knowledge in a highly specialized field while avoiding the extra time required for the MAS. Although the MAS does require a greater time commitment, it is perfect for those who desire a more comprehensive scope of knowledge and expertise within their chosen discipline. Before a student enrolls in either program, they should consider which option is more suitable to their academic aspirations and time requirements.
