Find out what our veterinary internship participants have got to say about their time in South Africa:

Zebras graze peacefully at the Big 5 game reserve in South Africa“Before going on the trip Oyster was useful in providing information on how to prepare for the project and always responded to enquires quickly. The activities I did whilst on the project were very hands-on and useful in terms of gaining practical experience. My highlight was working with the vet on a game capture.”

A herd of giraffes in a game reserve“I had an amazing time. The people I dealt with at Oyster were very helpful and enthusiastic and it made planning for my trip a lot easier. I learnt so much and got a lot of hands on experience with so many different animals. A highlight would definitely be getting to work with some of the animals in the game reserves.”

Veterinary experience in South Africa“Best thing I have ever done.  Harriet was great, felt like she personally wanted to help me on my trip and was just excited as me! I felt comfortable asking her any questions and she solved any problems quickly and efficiently. Go for as long as you can!! Time flies and 4 weeks didn’t feel like enough for me. Thank you!”

“I didn’t want to leave. I had the best experience of my life, I’ve learnt so many things and had the honour to help and see many different kind of animals. Every day was different and every day something exciting happened. The staff were amazing and they taught me many things and improved my experience with animals.”

web“I thought this program was perfect for pre-vet students with even minimal prior knowledge. The practical experience in any shape or form was very valuable and the hands-on nature of the project meant I was constantly engaged. The working opportunities with the unique animals would be hard to come by elsewhere.”

For vet students it’s really interesting to see how the reserve works and how the vet handle the different wild animals. It’s an opportunity to discover animals we’re not used to see in our country.”
