The University of Cordoba is one of the oldest foreign partners of Dnipro State University of Agiculture and Economics (UniversidaddeCórdoba, The cooperation with Spanish colleagues began in 1992, which continued in the TEMPUS project (1998-2001).


25 years later, thanks to the Erasmus + program, new opportunities for both students and teachers were opened. In the 2018-2019 academic year, three Masters / Postgraduate students will receive a grant for study and internship in the laboratories of the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine at the University of Cordoba.


Irina Volovik (Department of International Affairs) and Dmytro Masyuk (NDC Biosafety) were on a working visit to Cordoba from 11 to 15 June 2018. Meetings were held with Mrs. Vice-Rector for International Affairs, Ms. Dean of the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine, researchers and lecturers. the topics of joint research and work on the ideas of new projects have been identified.

Students who will go to study for academic mobility grants will have access to English-language teaching courses, will be able to work in state-of-the-art laboratories, veterinary clinics, and soil science laboratories.

In experimental laboratories thre is an increased level of biosafety.

Research is carried out using modern equipment, the university works with state and international projects, commissioned by private companies (pharmaceutical and others). Experiments are carried out on rodents, rabbits and fish. There is a separate farm for medical experiments on pigs.


At a meeting of the Royal Academy of Sciences, eloquence, and noble arts every week they are going to listen to reports on various topics. The history of the university has more than 800 years, and the academy is not much younger.


Thanks to Erasmus +, new opportunities are opened for those who have language training, researcher skills and wants to discover the world and the world themselves.
