The PhD programme in Veterinary Sciences of the University of Évora (PD-CVET/UÉ) promotes the development of competences and advanced training for research in the Veterinary Sciences field, in close connection with other agricultural sciences, life sciences and health sciences. The programme benefits from the multidisciplinary and interdisciplinary characteristics of the departmental organization of the University of Évora and associated research centres, allowing students to acquire competences that are simultaneously transversal and adapted to each dissertation project. The PD-CVET / UÉ has the support of the researchers from the University of Évora and from from other national and international research centres. The PhD course consists of 30 credits (ECT), 12 mandatory and 18 optional, where  students can follow 3rd cycle curricular units, chosen according to their training requirements, and may also be granted credits for other activities related to the programme, such as internships, courses, training actions and participation in congresses.
