Aberystwyth Uni is using therapy donkeys during exam season to help students unwind

Students get to pet them for 15 minutes at a time


Aberystwyth University has partnered with Dyfi Donkeys to give students the chance to de-stress by petting donkeys.

During exam season, students will get the chance to pet a donkey for 15 minutes each.

Louise Peeters told The Daily Post: “It gives students an opportunity to relax and recharge between revision and exams. There’s no formal charge, just a donation if students want to make one.”

Therapy sessions are also available on-site for anyone who may need one, not just students.

The company also provides free donkey sessions for families, donkey assisted learning and many other events. Furthermore, you can adopt a donkey via their website too.
