It’s great having a conversation with someone that has gone through the same things you are going through right now, specially once you’ve made the decision of moving to the UK. UK VetMove was the reason why I finally decided to make the move to improve my career. Andreia has been more than helpful through the whole process and I feel she knows how to give good advice because she’s been on your shoes!

I initially started with the English lessons which were great and after seeing how beneficial they are and all the information Andreia is providing I felt sure to change to the mentoring program.
Andreia covered all the mandatory treats a new to the profession vet would have to deal with in the UK and other more advanced questions that came afterwards.
I sincerely thank you Andreia and I hope more new to the UK and to the profession vets will be lucky to join your mentoring programme.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can you help me find a job?

Yes! We are not a recruitment company! We work closely with clinical practices looking for vets, and our services include job application training, referrals and clinical training, so we can deliver well prepared and trained Veterinary Surgeons for clinical practices who have open positions. 

How Do I Know if YOUR PROGRAMME Is Right for Me?

Our courses are aimed at Veterinary Surgeons who plan to make a career in the UK. We provide a wide range of information, classes and individual mentoring that prepares foreign vets for the reality of UK practice. We will offer you a free, complimentary introduction videoconference with Andreia, who will be able to tell you if any of our programmes is a suitable match for you. Contact her to arrange your videoconference.


We certainly hope so! On our e-learning platform UK VetSchool we offer UK VetTalks, a programme aimed specifically at training and improving your English level, and gain confidence in communicating without fears.

Do You Offer RELOCATION Services?

Moving to the UK can sound like a lot. Immigration and Brexit, finding a place to live, bank accounts, social security, tax system… It IS a lot! As part of our recruitment service and helping overseas vets moving to the UK, we do provide support for the relocation and more. Contact us for further informations.

UK VetLEAP requires you to send in an application.
