 3-  • The expert is solved and evaluated with professional communication with stakeholders in the regional, national or international level in the in the field of Veterinary Virology.
 4-  • The expert whose knowledgable and skilled is participate in activities the field of Veterinary Virology.
 5-  • The expert is define and solve proposals provides information on the problem about the field of Veterinary Virology and it is organize events.
 6-  • The expert is examine methods of scientific and technical, it is comment results, problems, or method of analysis for the constructs.
Occupational Profiles of Graduates

At the end of Veterinary Virology Second Cycle Degree Programme, the students become specialist in Department of Virology and they can work in official (Republic of Turkey Ministry of Food, Agriculture and Livestock, Institutes of Veterinary Control and Research), universities (Veterinary Faculties and Animal High Schools) or private sectors (Veterinary Clinics, Industries of Pharmacology and Feed Company).

Access to Further Studies

It is possible for the Veterinary Virology Second Cycle Programme students to continue their third cycle education after second cycle degree.

Examination Regulations, Assesment and Grading

Examinations are composed of one mid-term and one final exam. In order a student to take the final exam, s/he should attend at least 70% of theoretical courses and 80% of applied and laboratory studies. The examinations can be in written form, oral form, written-application form, oral-application form or project form. The course grade is calculated by adding 40% of mid-term grade to the 60% of the final exam. To be accepted as successful from the course, the second cycle degree students should get at least 70(CC) out of 100. The final exam results should be 70 (CC) in order to pass the course.
