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:

...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!

...I've learned more in a few months than I ever expected to.

Hello, my name is Symone and this is Muffins. I am enjoying the VOA® program. Although it is hard work, it’s also a lot of fun. If you’re thinking of going into the Veterinary Assistant field, this is the best school to go to. All the instructors are helpful and outgoing. In a relaxed environment I’ve learned more in a few months than I ever expected to.

The methods they use to teach are incredibly interesting and effective.

My name is Stacy and this is Frodo. We are enrolled in the VOA® program at Granville Business College. This is an excellent program with the best teachers and administrator. I have never enjoyed school until I joined the VOA® class. The methods they use to teach are incredibly interesting and effective. This has been one of the best decisions I have ever made!

The staff was supportive and knowledgeable...

My name is Cynthia. I graduated from the Veterinary Assistant program at Granville Business College. I had previously been looking to make a career change and GC offered me that in just 24 weeks. I was extremely excited about the program and my chance to work in the animal health care field. I got a full-time job as a VOA at a small animal veterinary practice as soon as I graduated, and have been working here ever since. There is always a lot to learn. I am also employed by the City of Vancouver at the Stanley Park Children’s Zoo where I work as an animal attendant. I find both jobs rewarding. My experience at GBC was positive and educational. The staff was supportive and knowledgeable, and helped me to succeed in my career. I would highly recommend the Veterinary Assistant Program to anyone who enjoys working with both animals and people.

...the amount of knowledge I gained is invaluable.

Hi, my name is Krissy and I graduated from the VOA® Class 47 at Granville Business College. The program is fantastic and the amount of knowledge I gained is invaluable. The teachers and administrators were very supportive and the methods used to instruct the class were great. During the program you learn a tremendous amount. The classes include; lectures, mock veterinary clinics, field trips, animal handling and restraint classes. We learned that the role of a Veterinary Assistant is very important since we make the first impression to the public. I recommend this program to anyone who loves animals and is considering working with them.

...praise the excellence of your program and the quality of your graduates.

Logo of Garibaldi Veterinary HospitalI am motivated to write this letter to praise the excellence of your program and the quality of your graduates. I have had the opportunity to employ two of your graduates. Both were excellent employees. They came with a solid knowledge base and practical skills that could immediately be employed, this thanks entirely to your program! Also, thank you very much for all of your efforts in finding me suitable employees. You have worked very hard to provide me with wonderful candidates. Potential students should know that your program would provide them with marketable skills. Potential employers should also be aware of this and that you are extremely helpful in matching candidates to positions. Thank you again.
