Veterinary Work Experience Courses

Work experience is vital if you want to become a vet. Most universities require you to have several weeks of experience before they will consider your application, and you will be expected to gain more experience while studying. Whether you’re applying for the first time, or looking to put the cherry on top of your portfolio, our veterinary work experience courses are meticulously assembled to meet EMA criteria whilst giving you the chance to work with vets on reserve in South Africa!

Designed to educate current and pre-vet students about the best ways to treat African wildlife, our courses are hands-on and give students the chance to experience what it’s like to be a wildlife vet alongside award winning and experienced specialists in wildlife conservation and care.
