Examination and education for veterinarians with a non EEA/Swiss diploma

Veterinarians with a diploma obtained outside the EEA or Switzerland, who would like to work as a veterinarian in the Netherlands, must apply for recognition, admission and registration in the register of Veterinary Medical Practitioners. Part of your registration procedure may be a test and/or a remedial course. Starting in May 2024, the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine will offer a knowledge and skills test. From September 2024 onwards, the faculty will teach  a remedial course of up to 60 ECTS (1 year).
