The VetAbroad® e-learning course is designed to prepare vets with degrees obtained outside the United Kingdom to deal with the cultural and professional difficulties and gain easier access to the British employment market. The e-learning format makes the course extremely flexible, allowing students to follow it when and where they find it convenient (at home, at work, at weekends, at night, etc.). After completing each module a self-test is provided that allows vets to know their study level. If a participant has any doubts or needs clarifications at any time, that participant may contact his tutor by e-mail, who will respond within the established terms. On completing the course, the participants will receive a certificate accrediting they have studied the course, which can be used to prove to future employers that the vet has taken the course and is aware of its content.

You have a maximum of two months to complete the course. We recommend you download the support material, as you can only access the course for 4 additional weeks after completing it. Users can request a course access extension, but the granting of this extension is entirely up to the manager.

Bear in mind that the number of places is limited.
