Launched in 2023, Universities Challenged is the result of a huge research project. We spent many hours submitting and reviewing Freedom of Information Act request replies from universities across the country, to compile data about animal research being conducted on British university campuses.
Our campaign targets universities to ensure that cruel experiments are consigned to the history books. We want to shed light on what types of experiments are being conducted and which species of animals are being routinely abused. In addition, the information provided here can be used by students who are already at university, whether or not they are studying science, who deserve to know how their tuition fees are being spent.
