As the name suggests, a virtual assistant is a professional who assists their employer with a variety of tasks, and who works remotely. These tasks can be administrative, research-based tasks, logistics-based tasks, etc. The functions assigned to a virtual assistant will be based on their skill set and can change as their client's needs change. Because of this, virtual assistants are encouraged to continually build on their skill sets. 

Some virtual assistants work part-time and may have multiple clients, while others may work for one employer full-time. Luckily for newcomers, there is no set expectation for one's educational background, though a degree in business administration, management, or in the industry your client operates in, would be highly beneficial. Also beneficial would be certified virtual assistant courses you have done or certification for tools commonly used in the profession. For this position, experience is king, so get as much experience on your plate as possible.
