We are quickly approaching the Fall 2011 Semester and we have some updates we would like to share! Feel free to message me privately for further clarification.

AUA allows a limited number of eligible students to transfer into accredited veterinary schools in the U.S and U.K. These are the only opportunities of this kind among Caribbean veterinary colleges.
AUA College of Veterinary Medicine & Biomedical Sciences (CVMBS) offers a two-tiered veterinary program combining preclinical studies in Antigua with the opportunity to finish earning a veterinary degree in the United States or United Kingdom. AUA’s unique affiliations with Virginia-Maryland Regional Center for Veterinary Medicine (VMRCVM), the Royal (D i c k) College of Veterinary Studies and the University of Nottingham make CVMBS the only Caribbean veterinary school that provides select students the chance to transfer into a top U.S. or U.K. program. Students making this transfer are awarded their degrees from the institution they transfer to.
Students transferring into an affiliated school must satisfy the transfer student guidelines of that institution.

Virginia-Maryland Regional College of Veterinary Medicine selects students for transfer after they have completed four semesters at AUA in Antigua. Students must sit for and pass the PAVE Qualifying Exam before they will be considered for transfer. If accepted, students enter VMRCVM in the second semester of the second year; upon successful completion of the program, students are awarded a DVM and are eligible to practice in the United States after successfully passing the North American Licensing Examination (NAVLE).

The Royal (D i c k) College of Veterinary Studies at The University of Edinburgh offers transfer opportunity to students who have completed three semesters in Antigua. Students are not required to sit for the PAVE Qualifying Exam, and, if accepted students will enter the third year of the five-year program. Successful students are awarded a Bachelor Degree of Veterinary Medicine & Surgery, a UK equivalent to a DVM, and a Member of the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons (MRCVS). Royal (D i c k ) College of Veterinary Studies has received both AVMA and RCVS certification. Upon earning their degree, graduates are able to practice in England, Scotland, Wales, and Northern Ireland immediately, and in the U.S. after successfully passing the NAVLE.

The University of Nottingham offers a veterinary transfer opportunity. Students are not required for the PAVE Qualifying Exam. Successful students in the veterinary medical program are awarded a Bachelor of Veterinary Medicine/Bachelor of Veterinary Surgery degree, a UK equivalent to a DVM and a MRCVS. The University of Nottingham has received RCVS certification; upon earning their degree, graduates are immediately able to practice in the United Kingdom. The University has applied for AVMA accreditation.

Affiliations with other AVMA accredited veterinary medical schools are pending.

We are enthusiastic about our new partnerships and hope you are too!
