What Our Grads Have To Say
We Couldn’t Be Where We Are Without Our Students
At Granville College, we take pride in graduating skilled, motivated and caring individuals ready to contribute to animal care in BC or abroad.
Here is what a few of our grads, students, and veterinary employers have to say about our program:
...this College was nothing but exceptional and trumps any other vet assistant school...
Granville College is easily accessible by skytrain/bus etc and there is options for every type of budget, learning style, and goal. The administrator (Paulina) was super personable, always smiling and no matter what she was doing or how busy she was, her door was always open and you were always welcome. My instructor Justyna went above and beyond creating a hands on, organized and useful curriculum and our class not only had a ton of fun but learned technical skills that allowed us to all exceed expectations at our practicums.
This college and its team of instructors helped me to pursue the goals I had coming in, and helped me create new goals in the animal welfare industry after graduation. It’s a big decision to go back to school but no matter what age you are, this College was nothing but exceptional and trumps any other vet assistant school in the area. It will be impossibly hard to find a school with the amount of quality and pertinent information that this college provides. My experience at this school was incredible and I will recommend it for years to come.
...went above and beyond to help everyone succeed...
This is a great school…very convenient beside the Skytrain, a very encompassing curriculum, very caring, supportive, hard working administrative staff (Love you Paulina,) and my instructor, Justyna, who always went above and beyond to help everyone succeed with her never-ending support, guidance, improvement on the curriculum, and desire to make the class interesting through her wit, insightful stories, and embracement of new opportunities (those real organs were amazing!) Thank you so much for helping me finally realize my dream of working for the betterment of animal health and welfare!
...our teacher, was very knowledgeable and approachable.
The course prepared and trained me the skills I need for my daily tasks in a busy vet clinic. Justyna, our teacher, was very knowledgeable and approachable. She make class so much more alive and fun. Paulina, the school Admin, was the sweetest. She made administration to job applications super easy with her full support. Yes, I love my VA course in Granville College.
Couldn't have asked for better support team!
I love everything about the school: the school load, my classmates, our always smiling, caring and sweetest admin Paulina & our knowledgeable, motivated and caring teacher Justyna! Couldn’t have asked for better support team! I was confident & ready when I went for my practicum & I am now working my dream job! Thank you all again for everything!!!
...the curriculum encompassed so much knowledge...
They did a great job! So happy I went there! The staff are great and the curriculum encompassed so much knowledge that was useful when I went into the workplace. I think this college is great and now I can Succeed.
It's really thrilling to make a difference.
I was still in a deep depression after having been thrown from a horse carriage, and was having a lot of trouble letting go of working with draft horses. But here I am again with a job that I always am thrilled to get up and go to – every single day! And in my last work evaluation I got superb marks and once again, it goes back to what I learned with you (Granville College) and was able to bring to the shelter, upping the quality of our medical side and customer service side as well. It’s really thrilling to make a difference.

...great training & leadership...
Granville College gave me the knowledge & foundation for a rewarding career in the veterinary industry. Thanks to great training & leadership, I am now in my 16th year of being a successful Veterinary Office Assistant!
The program really prepares you to be confident...
My name is Lana and I temporarily relocated from Calgary, Alberta to take the Veterinary Assistant Program and it has been one of the best decisions I have ever made towards my future. I have come away with a completely new outlook on animal care, welfare and health management. The program really prepares you to be confident and well equipped to operate within a clinic setting. I even find that I am more comfortable taking care of my own animals now as well. Anyone who takes the VOA Program will be happy with the investment, just like I have been.
...a solid introduction to the world of animal health.
Hi, I am Sheahan. I have been taking the VOA® and in spite of being the oldest student in the class, I am having a blast. The instructor makes learning fun and easy in a warm, friendly environment. I’d recommend the program to anyone who is looking for a solid introduction to the world of animal health. It’s just the beginning of a whole lot more out there! PS – I travel from the Sunshine Coast via ferry and bus every day and it is well worth it!
