More about Alix
“I was looking for specific courses related to human-animal relationships in an English-speaking country. NTU appeared to be the best option for me as it offered exactly what I was looking for.
“The course focuses on human-animal interactions in specific contexts, for example animal-assisted therapy, zoos, farms etc. It analyses the current state of knowledge related to human-animal interaction, the outcomes and issues, and whether animal welfare is impacted. We mainly study UK laws and standards in regards to animal welfare, however we also look at existing knowledge worldwide, mainly through scientific journals and publications.
“The course allows you to question your own beliefs and debate and share ideas with other students from differing backgrounds. To study this course you should be curious, self-determined and ready to challenge yourself.
“Jacqueline Boyd, the course leader, is very supportive, pragmatic, positive and open-minded. Other tutors are also supportive and passionate.”
