What Exactly is UK VetSchool? Do I really need it?
First steps for a successful career
The UK has a lot to offer non-UK vets and nurses, and UK practices need experienced clinicians. Around 900 overseas vets register every year with the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons – that’s more than register from within the UK.
However, the everyday realities of practice life can be very different from practice in in other countries. As a result, almost a third of non-UK vets have returned to their own countries within 24 months of registering with the RCVS, many of them without even having found a first job.
