Veterinary Technology 

Zimbabwe is a nation of immense natural beauty and resources. It is home to one of the seven natural wonders of the world, hosts Africa’s largest elephant populations, and is one of the safest African countries in which to travel. English is widely spoken, which makes it relatively easy for English-speaking study abroad students to interact meaningfully. Zimbabwe’s people are among the most engaging and friendly that one can come across. The program focuses on primary initiatives in Victoria Falls, Hwange and Antelope Park aimed at caring for and protecting the wildlife together with local communities. A variety of domestic and exotic animals are involved.
