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:

Returning back to school to become a VTA was honestly one of the best decisions I have ever made. This course teaches you so much in such a short amount of time and you have one of the greatest instructors (Mandy) guiding you through it. I am going to miss it a lot, but now I feel ready and prepared to become a member of the animal health care world. The opportunities are endless!

Granville College has been an amazing school from start to finish. I have gained plenty of knowledge and friends from my program. I feel confident going into my field. I would recommend this school for anyone who is wanting to enter the veterinary field.

Granville College has been such a great experience and has provided me with so much knowledge! Mandy is so caring and loving to all her students, and created a fantastic learning environment. I loved coming to class and seeing a new critter!

This is a great course with logs of information. Mandy is one of the best instructors I have ever had and is incredibly supportive and connected to her students during and after the course. I highly recommend this diploma and college. Just know that you do need access to a laptop!

Mandy was an amazing instructor. She made the class environment enjoyable and had a great way at teaching us during our lectures. I will be more than prepared for my working environment because of this program Thank you!

I really enjoyed my time at Granville College. I have made some life-long friends/contacts in the veterinary field and have learned so much. I feel very prepared to enter into a new job with all the necessary skills to succeed. Mandy, our instructor, took the time to make sure everyone in class felt individually supported to excel!

...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.
