Study at the University of Guelph in Canada

“We are provided with a lot of opportunities within the Ontario Veterinary College, including developing strong connections with our professors and gaining a very hands-on approach to learning which will prepare me well for working in the veterinary field. I also love that everyone here is so friendly! I made friends really fast when I first came to Guelph.”
