Ecole Nationale Vétérinaire de Toulouse (ENVT)

Founded in 1828, the Ecole Nationale Vétérinaire de Toulouse (ENVT) is a higher education establishment, a research centre and a public veterinary hospital. It is the oldest “Grande école” of Toulouse. Its campus extends over 20 000 square metres. ENVT is scientifically and professionally involved in different fields such as biology, clinical science, hygiene, the science of animal domestication, breeding, biotechnology, public health and any other sector contributing to the improvement of human health and welfare, animal breeding and the food industry. Its activities concern all sorts of animals, including pets, sports animals and farm animals in various environments (rural, urban and natural). Research at ENVT focuses on food toxicology, host-pathogen interactions, cell genetics, nutrition and digestive ecosystem and mycotoxicology.

With 570 students in initial training (73% females), 60 foreign students per year, 370 veterinarians on continuing education programs yearly and 115 newly graduates every year, ENVT is one of the most prestigious schools in France.  

The ENVT is deeply rooted in a regional network. For example, it is a founder member of Toulouse Agri Campus, in association with other institutions involved in “green education” (Institut National des Sciences Appliquees, Ecole Nationale Superieure d’Agronomie, Ecole d’Ingenieurs de Purpan, Ecole National de Formation Agronomique, Institut National de la Recherche Agronomique). It is also widely open to international relationships through its network of twinned schools, research consortia maintained by its laboratories, student exchange programs, teachers’ and researchers’ mobility. The school welcomes numerous foreign students and emphasises scientific and international cooperation. One of its ambitions is to develop scientific partnerships abroad.

Thus, ENVT takes part in projects dealing with technology, economics and agriculture with other scientific institutions such as Agromip or the Midi-Pyrénées Education and Research Establishments Group. ENVT has also implemented international cooperation schemes through Tempus programs, and partnerships with numerous universities in Australia, Brazil, Mexico, Argentina, Morocco, Vietnam, Thailand, etc. Along the same line, the Master’s Degree in InterRisk was created in partnership with the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine of Kasetsart University (Thailand) and The French Agricultural Research Centre for International Development.
