What we do
In addition to campaigning to persuade the Open University to replace its harmful use of animals in research and teaching with animal-free alternatives, we provide information for students about animal use in current OU courses.
For us to continue with this work and to remain eligible to take motions to OUSA Conference we need to maintain a membership from among like-minded current and former students and Open University staff.
How to join
Full membership is open to OU students, ex-students and staff of all disciplines.
Contact details for membership enquiries and application are:
SES Membership Secretary
Bristol BS37 4JA
The email address for membership enquiries is on the membership application form.
Membership is free, but a donation, suggested amount of £3 to £10, will help towards our expenses. Please make cheques/P.O.s payable to Students for Ethical Science.
You may also download the application form in rich text format. You may either complete it using a word processor (such as Microsoft Word, Open Office or Office Star) and email it to the above email address or, if you are including a donation, complete it, print it off and send it to the above postal address.
What membership provides
Vivien Pomfrey has an emailing list for informing SES members about news relating to animal experimentation and other animal welfare issues. This information is well worth receiving, but you may opt out of joining the list if you would prefer not to.
We have an optional networking scheme enabling members to share information, ideas and, where necessary, moral support. If you would like to join this scheme, you can download the SES Networking form in rich text format. You can access it using a word processor (such as Microsoft Word, Open Office or Office Star). You will need to complete it, print it off, sign it and send it to the above postal address.
