IVSA in the World
Member Organizations of IVSA are located all over the globe, each composed of extremely active members, sharing ideas and cultures throughout the year. The differences in cultures and various curriculums make all IVSA experiences rich and unique, but we all share the same passion for IVSA.
The IVSA is an apolitical, associative student organization. As such, Member Organizations are recognized by a simple majority vote at IVSA General Assemblies. Member Organizations are thus recognized independent of the de facto or de jure status of the territory in which they are based.

- Our holidays:
We have three times a year during which we can either host an exchange or take part in one overseas:
- A very short 10 day break at the end of April
- A 2 week break at the beginning of July (winter in SA)
- Mid November and December (summer holidays).
- We can normally host up to ten exchange students and ten of our own students making the group total thirty.
- We generally try to raise all the funds for the South African leg of the exchange and it is then expected that the country we are exchanging with will raise the funds for their leg of the exchange, each exchange is different however.
- Exchanges usually last between ten days and two weeks.
- We are happy to exchange with 2 countries/faculties simultaneously if the itinerary will allow it (i.e. 5 students from Netherlands and 5 from Belgium on one exchange)
- We need to know 1 year in advance to organise an exchange.
- Our exchanges are generally a massive South African road trip, exploring our many World heritage sites, getting in touch with wildlife, swimming on our stunning beaches as well as the opportunity to give a little back to the community by taking part in a community veterinary clinic....... all of this is peppered with the veterinary education and lectures at our University as well as at many of the places we visit (crocodile farm, elephant sanctuary, cheetah sanctuary etc).
- So feel free to contact us to organise an exchange as we love to explore the wanders of the world and enjoy introducing people to ours!
