"OzTREKK was amazing and I would not be here without them. They made my application process so much easier, making sure I had every document needed and helped take the stress away from the complicated process. They also prepared me for my transition to Australia and I felt like my journey has been so smooth due to the advice from OzTREKK."

PRACTICING IN CANADA 

The Australian veterinary programs OzTREKK represents are accredited by the American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA). This means that graduates are considered in the same category as graduates from North American vet schools when undertaking licensing examinations in North America. Graduates are eligible to sit the North American Veterinary Licensing Examination along with graduates from accredited veterinary colleges in the United States and Canada. AVMA accreditation is well recognised as the international benchmark for quality in veterinary education.

Student Reviews

What do OzTREKK students say about choosing to study medicine in Australia?

(I like) the opportunities... for education and training of medicine in remote areas. The courses are structured to give you ample of firsthand experience as well as making sure that you are able to understand what is expected of you.

James Cook University Medicine student

I feel like I am receiving top-notch educational quality and have really enjoyed how well-rounded the curriculum is and the dedication the school of medicine staff have been to the student experience.

 University of Queensland Medicine student

"I love how great the program is with regards to the teaching and first class nature of research.  It is an excellent program, and a great place to study as the teaching style is very similar to Canadian schools if not better.

 University of Melbourne Medicine student

The best part of the program so far has been the weekly day spent in the hospitals since the first week. I also like the laboratory and hands on training segments of the course at the university.

OzTREKK Student Reviews

DDS at the University of Melbourne, for the most part, has been very challenging yet rewarding. There is a large number of Canadian students in the class, which helped with the transition to Melbourne.

 University of Melbourne Dental student

 University of Sydney Dental student

I love how much hands on experience I am already getting in the Sim Clinic, as well as the caring, intelligent, and passionate professors and instructors I have learned from so far. We also are exposed to some of the most amazing resources and technology which makes learning much more enjoyable.

The university has put a lot of time and effort into planning an amazing hands-on and comprehensive program to teach future veterinarians. I feel confident that the DVM program at the University of Melbourne will prepare me to be the best future veterinarian that I can be.

 University of Melbourne DVM student

Love the program, very hands on and the professors are very personal. Melbourne Uni has an amazing teaching staff. I am already getting a lot of hands-on experience and am able to talk to every professor on a one-on-one basis.

University of Melbourne DVM student

I love the opportunities I've been given to explore my fascination of the wild creatures of Oz. The level of education is world-class and a lot of fun!

 University of Queensland BVetSci student

The university campus is gorgeous. I like that my program is very hands on and is a small, tightly knit course.  The vet program is very full on and requires lots of study, but it is completely worth it.

FAQs WITH NASH 

Am I eligible to apply?

Depends where you would like to apply. Generally speaking, if you have a bachelor degree, you can apply to Melbourne, Sydney, and UQ. If you haven't yet received an undergraduate degree, you can apply to UQ and to Sydney's undergraduate veterinary program. 

How will I be assessed?

Can I practice in Canada?

How do I apply?

You sure can! As OzTREKK's vet programs are accredited by the AVMA, you'll just need to sit the same licensing exam as a North American veterinary school graduate.
Again, this varies by university, but generally speaking, you will be assessed by your GPA and in some cases, your animal-handling experience.
OzTREKK has created an all-in-one application system. After you've filled out the application (which will only take about 2 minutes), we will confirm receipt via email and will guide you through the next steps!
