“For almost two decades the course has been educating people from around the world. Although in our digital age, courses increasingly are taught online and the students kept ever more remote from the teachers and other students, CAWSEL bucks the trend and continues to bring everyone together – enthusiastic students and teachers – in one real and beautiful place, Cambridge. Join us for thought-provoking lectures and interesting and entertaining discussions. Oh, and make great new friends too!”
Dr Anthony Podberscek, Faculty of Veterinary Science, University of Sydney and course organiser
