We help bioscience students get EMS credits without travelling, by presenting self-paced online courses in collaboration with wildlife veterinarians, ecologists, and game reserves in South Africa.
About your Teacher:

About Biological Science Online:
These courses are designed to be online versions of selected wildlife medicine experiences available in South Africa. We’ve collaborated with projects to create a practical road trip in the form of the Wildlife Experience, an exclusive package just for training vets, vet nurses and bioscience students that is both affordable and of high quality. It’s built around our principles of collaboration, credibility, and accessibility by connecting communities and exceptional projects and experts while not sacrificing some of the fantastic food and accommodation that South Africa has to offer. In this way, we’re able to provide both practical and theoretical instruction, covering veterinary treatment as well as sanctuary management and wildlife conservation.
