What is CAWSEL?

CAWSEL is a professionally developed range of courses aimed at providing attendees with an in-depth appreciation of animal welfare science, ethics and law. The topics covered include: Welfare Concepts and Assessment, and Zoo Animal WelfareLaw and Companion Animal and Horse Welfare; Principlesof Ethics in Relation to Animal Useand Farm Animal Welfare.

 

With a legacy spanning well over two decades, CAWSEL is comprised of four Courses aimed at anyone with a keen interest in animal welfare, from veterinarians, veterinary nurses, animal welfare researchers and animal science researchers to FE, HE, Masters or PhD students and animal charity workers or campaigners. Participants can choose to attend as many Courses as they wish, all being taught and priced individually. Historically, the classroom-style courses have attracted students from over 25 countries world-wide.

 

Heather Crawford(PhD Student, Murdoch University, Western Australia) describes the courses as “fantastic”. Heather “attended all four courses and found topic coverage was comprehensive and the research presented often ground breaking.” 

 

15 experts in the field of animal welfare, all highly regarded academics and professionals, are involved in delivering the material over the two weeks, through a combination of lectures, videos and discussions. 

 

Amongst them are Professor Emeritus Donald Broom(Cambridge University) who has lectured on animal welfare in 43 countries, had published over 200 refereed papers and seven books; Professor Emeritus David Morton, awarded a CBE for his “services to the UK and International Veterinary Profession especially Animal Welfare and Ethics”; and course organiser, Dr Anthony Podberscek(University of Sydney), board member of The International Society for Anthrozoology and editor-in-chief of Anthrozoös, the multidisciplinary journal of the interactions of people and animals.

 

Early Bird Fees (valid until April 30th) vary from £400 to £980 per Course, and some grants are available via the Douglas Houghton Memorial Fund. We also offer Student and Charity rates. We take online registrations only for all four Courses. Find out more including fees and available grants on our official website: www.cawsel.com
