Here is a good online course (free) from the University of Edinburgh vet school: Do You Have What It Takes To Be a Veterinarian? There are several other animal, veterinary, medicine, and related courses on Coursera.org too, but I have taken that one and can vouch for it personally. You could pay to get a certificate, but many (all?) of them can also be taken for free as well.

University of Edinborough is offering an online course on Coursera called "Do you have what it take to be a veterinarian?". I'm not sure if it has networking opportunities included in it, but might look good on a vet school application!

Coursera is very popular among my peers. In particular - I'm not 100% certain how helpful it is, because I haven't done it myself but - a lot of my peers loved Edivet from the University of Edinburgh https://www.coursera.org/learn/becoming-a-veterinarian


It's free (from the looks of things there is some cost associated with it but I'm not sure where exactly; maybe for the certificate?), has a shareable certificate (again, I'm not sure who valuable this is to employers or anything) and apparently 21% of people got a tangible career benefit from the course.

If you haven't come across it already, at the very least I'd say it is worth investigating.
