The highest academic standard

The standard of the ISVPS Certificates are consistent across all countries and therefore anyone gaining an ISVPS Certificate, regardless of what country they have taken the exam, will have recognition of achieving a set standard which is recognised across many European countries.

ISVPS is delighted to announce that many of our qualifications have been validated by Harper Adams University (HAU) at a Postgraduate Certificate Level 7 (Masters) within the Quality Assurance Agency framework.  These certificates carry 60 academic credits (ECTS) and there is a full route to a Master’s Degree (180 ECTS) available through the three-way collaboration between ISVPS, HAU and Improve International. The rigorous validation process undertaken by HAU, together with their on-going involvement in the Improve International programmes ensures that both the teaching elements and the examination processes meet the highest academic standards.

Anyone gaining a PgC through HAU/ISVPS is eligible to apply for the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons ‘Advanced Practitioner Status’.
