Finland: call for practical training places for Finnish veterinary students
Finland: call for practical training places for Finnish veterinary students


The Faculty of Veterinary Medicine of the University of Helsinki is looking for information from other European countries on private clinics, enterprises, slaughterhouses, farms etc. that potentially take interns.


Our veterinary students have the possibility to take part in the European Union’s Erasmus programme and spend a period between 3 months and 12 months as trainees or interns in another European country. Students will get an Erasmus grant to help cover the travel and subsistence costs.

The employer is obliged to provide at least Workmen’s Compensation Insurance for the intern, additional financial compensation is voluntary. Prior to their departure, students are provided with the "Training Agreement", a "Quality Commitment" and The Erasmus Student Charter. More information about Erasmus placements: Link

One of our students would especially like to find a training place for the next summer (she speaks English and German) and another one would like to work in Great Britain at some point in the following academic year.

If you have information on way’s for veterinary students to find training places or if you could offer places to students, please contact Janna Koivisto: janna.koivisto@helsinki.fi
