The students of the Department during their studies have to complete a six-month practical training in the profession. The practical training aims at introducing to the trainees the structure and operation of production units or services, the social, economic and technological elements that influence the work conditions, as well as the active attendance of the trainees in the processes and methods of production or services.

The practical training is taking place on the last semester of studies (8th) and only if the student has successfully completed the 2/3 of the courses in the curriculum (26 courses). From these 26 courses, a student, that wants to take the practical training, must have successfully completed the following courses: Animal Nutrition II, Dairy Cattle Production, Sheep and Goat Production, Pig Production, Poultry Production, Animal Breeding, Apiculture and one compulsory elective course. The issues of the practical training are coordinated from the Committee for the Practical Training consisting of five (5) members, three (3) Permanent ES members and two (2) representatives of students. The committee oversees:

  • for new places for practical training,
  • for the suitability of work places, in which the practical training will take place, and
  • for the distribution of places for practical training.

Each student who is going to do the practical training submits an application to the Secretary of the Department, in which he/she declares one or more services or enterprises in which he/she is interested to work. The Committee of the Practical Training distributes the students in the existing places after the appraisal of their applications. The students could suggest themselves the operation in which they want to do their practical training. In such case the Committee, after inspecting the suitability of the operation, is allowing or not the student to perform his/her practical training.

During the practical training, students are inspected by the supervisor of the practical training, who is appointed by the Department. The ES members, who will be assigned as supervisors of the practical training of the students, visit the places of practical training, are informed for the subject of students work, follow the student performance and collaborate with the trainees and their manager in work in resolving any problems.

In cases where the administration of the employer does not follow, in general, the programme of practical training or occupy the trainees in other activities, the committee could possibly decide the termination of the practical training in this employer. The committee makes the necessary arrangements in order to find new places for the students that their practical training was terminated. For the termination of the practical training in the new employment place, only the remaining time from the six (6) months of the total practical training is taking place.

Each trainee student keeps a book of practical training, in which he/she keeps weekly notes of his/her work activities as well as a short description of the duties that was assigned to him by his/her employer. Every weekly note is reviewed and signed from the person assigned by the employer as the responsible person for the trainee’s practical training.

The duration of the practice training is six months (6) or twenty-four (24) calendar weeks of five working days and is taking place, as mentioned above, in the last semester of studies.



Period A:   from 01/10 until 30/03

Period B:   from 01/04 until 30/09


The trainee student can be absent justifiably for five (5) working days in total, for serious reasons. The absences are registered in the book of practical training, considered and signed by the Department’s supervisor.

The trainee, in the place of his employment, is obliged to follow the safety and employment rules, as well as any other regulation in effect for the personnel of the employer. Arbitrary absences or infringement of the regulations of work can lead to the termination of the practical training. In such cases the student is obliged to repeat in the next semester the process of search for a new place for the completion of the remaining time of his/her practical training.

During their practical training, students are paid according to the legislations in place. After the completion of the practical training the student submits to the Secretary of the Department the book of the practical training suitably completed with the number of weekly reports, the time and the subject of employment, the days of absence and the student’s performance. The Head of the Department, to whom the supporting documents of the practical training are submitted, decides for their acceptance or rejection.
