Who Can Apply


The Veterinary Semester Abroad in Thailand is open to students from all academic backgrounds, not just pre-vet students.

We welcome students to study with us as a gap year after high school to decide if they want to pursue a veterinary education. We also welcome students who have completed an undergraduate degree but want to enhance their vet school application.

We are proud to often host students on their first trip abroad as well as students who are seasoned international travelers. You do not need to be a US citizen to apply.

In order to apply, you must meet the following requirements by the time your program starts:

  • Eighteen years or older
  • High School degree or equivalent
