Ready to progress through learning?

Our postgraduate programs are focused, modular courses that combine theoretical and practical classes in order to provide you with the best learning experience. The duration of annual courses ranges between one and two years and requires no more than two to four days of classes every six to eight weeks. This schedule is designed to fit within the busy schedules of working veterinary professionals, allowing them to earn a post-graduate qualification without sacrificing excessive time from their practice.

These courses provide a higher educational level that allows you to build your knowledge, or obtain an increased set of specialized skills in specific areas of veterinary medicine.

These courses are also the best way to gain a middle tier qualification, the General Practitioner Certificate (GPCert), granted by the International School of Veterinary Postgraduate Studies (ISVPS).

General Practitioner Certificate

A GPCert guarantees that its holder has mastered valuable additional skills and has the competence to use their knowledge to enhance the value of their practice. The GPCert can be a fundamental advancement for your career and is recognized as a valuable qualification within the veterinary field. ISVPS certificates have been recognized as an essential quality standard in several countries.

ISVPS recognition and certification

Originally launched as the European School of Veterinary Postgraduate Studies in 2003, the organization has since added programs in Asia, South America, and the United States, and changed its name to ISVPS.

The uniqueness of the GPCert is that through the modular programmes candidates are given structured taught sessions from experienced professionals which the final examination is based on.

Since the launch of the first General Practitioner Certificates in 2004, over 4000 veterinary professionals have earned ESVPS/ISVPS Certificates in over 15 countries.
