Furthermore, the smooth operation of the Association is ensured through the per year student representantives, who are promoted from each academic year separately.

International Veterinary Students Association Thessaly (IVSA)

The International Veterinary Students Association (IVSA) is a non-union and non-profit organization that leverages the potential and dedication of veterinary students to their science. It was founded in the early 1950s in Denmark to promote and apply veterinary skills, education and knowledge internationally. IVSA Thessaly was founded in 2003 and reactivated in 2011, with the aim of providing educational opportunities in all areas of veterinary science. This is achieved through collaboration with other veterinary or student bodies, to support students of the Faculty of Veterinary Science of the University of Thessaly to get in touch with other students and attend educational programs around the world. In 2012, IVSA Greece was founded in the partnership of IVSA Thessaly and IVSA Thessaloniki. IVSA Thessaly supports visitation programs for veterinary students, through which it provides the opportunity for internships in private or public veterinary institutions abroad, as a result of the exchange of knowledge and experience with students of foreign countries. Also, IVSA Thessaly organizes a variety of events and every year co-organizes with IVSA Thessaloniki the Panhellenic Conference of Veterinary Students, which takes place alternately in Karditsa or Thessaloniki.

ERASMUS+

Program ERASMUS+

Erasmus + is the European Commission’s program for education, training, youth and sports, aimed at enhancing skills and employability as well as modernizing education, training and youth systems in all areas of Lifelong Learning. (Higher Education, Vocational Education and Training, Adult Education, School Education, Youth Activities, etc.). The Erasmus + program is structured in 3 Key Actions for education, training and youth.

The Erasmus + Program in Higher Education is inextricably linked to the Erasmus program and subsidizes student and staff mobility in Higher Education Institutions participating in the Program. The new Erasmus + program got its name from its predecessor because of its great recognition. Erasmus+ στον τομέα της Ανώτατης Εκπαίδευσης συνδέεται άρρηκτα με το πρόγραμμα Erasmus και επιχορηγεί την κινητικότητα φοιτητών και προσωπικού σε Ιδρύματα Ανώτατης Εκπαίδευσης σε Χώρες που συμμετέχουν στο Πρόγραμμα. Το νέο πρόγραμμα Erasmus+ πήρε το όνομα του από τον προκάτοχο του εξαιτίας της μεγάλης του αναγνωρισιμότητας.

The mobility of students and staff abroad is considered very important because the benefits of moving people are many. Through mobility, students have the opportunity to develop new skills and qualifications, which contribute to their personal development. In particular, students are given the opportunity to improve their language skills, develop intercultural skills, become European Citizens, and in addition, students who move for internships can gain valuable work experience in a business / organization abroad. In addition, mobility provides an opportunity for faculty and staff to upgrade their skills, exchange good practices and gain significant experience.

The Erasmus + program seeks to help young people interested in pursuing a full-time postgraduate course in another European Union country, and provides loans on favorable repayment terms. This opportunity is offered from the academic year 2015-2016 and students should contact their country’s banks.

It is clarified that only the Higher Education Institutions, which have been certified with the Erasmus + University Map by the European Commission, can submit to the National Unit an application for funding for mobility activities within the framework of this Action.

IKY has been designated as the National Coordination Unit of the European Erasmus + Program, while the International Relations / Erasmus Offices of Higher Education Institutions have taken over the management of the Program. Therefore, students should contact the Erasmus Office of their Institution in order to be informed and submit the necessary supporting documents.

The list of students of our Department who have participated in the ERASMUS + program is available here.
