Univerzita Veterinárskeho Lekárstva a Farmácie v Košiciach

The first efforts to establish a veterinary college in Slovakia appeared at the end of 1939 as a result of serious changes at universities in Bohemia. On 17 November 1939, the Reich Protector in Bohemia and Moravia von Neurath issued the famous order to close Czech universities, initially for three years. However, the closure lasted until the end of World War II. As a result, veterinary doctors at the Veterinary College in Brno and other applicants for this study from Slovakia were in a critical situation. In Slovakia, universities continued to operate undisturbed, but the veterinary faculty was not here.

At the proposal of the Ministry of Education, on December 18, 1939, they convened a meeting of the interested parties and agreed on the establishment of the Veterinary Faculty within the Slovak University. The statute of the faculty was also drawn up, which was sent to the individual faculties of the university, the Prime Minister and the Minister of Education.

In the end, the proposal to create a veterinary school was not approved on the grounds that it is more beneficial for the state if interested parties study abroad on state scholarships. Thus, the idea of ​​establishing a Slovak veterinary school did not find either understanding or financial or personnel conditions at that time.
