Veterinary students can learn more about animal welfare thanks to AWF’s series of free talks and debates, delivered by expert speakers and aimed at helping prepare students for life in practice. These interactive sessions are delivered by knowledgeable speakers with a wealth of experience to impart to future vets. Topics include exotics, euthanasia, dangerous dogs and farm animal welfare.  To book a talk for your school visit our student page:

Dangerous Dogs talk at Liverpool:

"The talk proved extremely popular with a huge turnout of around 120 students and not a seat left unfilled in the lecture theatre.  It was a brilliant evening and it incited some really thoughtful questions".

How to respond to requests from clients for the euthanasia of healthy companion animals at Edinburgh

"All in all an excellent talk which I’d highly recommend to anyone who wants a knowledgeable speaker with a wealth of experience and advice to impart to future vets.  Liz spoke knowledgeably about the topic, drawing on many personal experiences whilst in practice. People really enjoyed having the cases scattered through the lecture theatre, keeping everyone engaged and getting involved in the discussion".
