La Facultad de Veterinaria de Cáceres estimula a sus alumnos para que aprovechen la oportunidad de estudiar e investigar fuera de su Centro, tanto en otras Facultades españolas, como en el resto de la UE y en países latinoamericanos. Para ello se hace eco de todos los programas de ayudas que, a través del Servicio de Relaciones Internacionales de la Universidad de Extremadura, se ponen a disposición del alumnado:
Los programas de movilidad pueden tener diferentes duraciones, y también diferentes objetivos, no sólo la formación académica: pueden ayudar a adquirir una mejor dimensión lingüística, a contactar con futuros centros de trabajo, o abrir nuevas posibilidades laborales…
Desde nuestra Facultad queremos, con todos estos programas, facilitar la inserción del estudiante en un ambiente que se internacionaliza cada día más, promoviendo de esta forma la dimensión internacional de las actividades formativas universitarias, tanto de enseñanza como de investigación, reforzando además la presencia de nuestros estudiantes en la comunidad mundial veterinaria.
Responsable de los programas de movilidad: Prof. Marcos Pérez López
