Legal basis

We are pleased that you are interested in studying Veterinary Medicine at Freie Universität Berlin.

Admission to Freie Universität Berlin is a prerequisite for the grading of coursework and examinations.

The Ordinance on the Licensing of Veterinarians (TAppV), which has been in effect since October 1, 2006, brings with it changes that affect the recognition of study and examination achievements. According to § 65 of the TAppV, the following are recognized in full or in part, provided that equivalence is given

  • Periods of related studies at a university in Germany,
  • periods of temporary veterinary medicine studies abroad.

According to § 66 of the TAppV, the university of the state

  • in which the applicant is enrolled or admitted to study Veterinary Medicine or
  • has submitted an application for enrollment or admission to study Veterinary Medicine

decides on recognition. As a consequence of this, recognition notices from other countries or from other universities will no longer be recognized at Freie Universität as of October 1, 2006.
