The University of Leeds Research Ethics Policy and ethical review procedures seek to protect, as far as possible, all groups involved in research including participants, researchers, funders and the University of Leeds throughout the lifespan of the research.
As a university, we may need to process information about our stakeholders including employees, students, alumni and the public for administrative, research and general business purposes.
Our Data Protection Code of Practice (PDF) sets out how we meet our legal obligations under the Data Protection Act to make sure we process and store this information fairly, lawfully and securely and that our stakeholders understand how their data is being used.
Modern slavery statement
Our modern slavery statement informs our students, staff, suppliers, stakeholders and the public about the steps that we have taken, and will take, to mitigate any risk of modern slavery, human trafficking, forced and bonded labour and labour rights violations within our organisation and supply chains.
Use of animals in research
The University of Leeds carries out research using animals to improve the health and welfare of human beings and animals, to provide a better understanding of the animals themselves, and for educational purposes.
It uses animals only when there are no alternatives, and is firmly committed to the replacement, reduction and refinement of the use of animals in research (the 'three Rs').

Commitment to Fairtrade
We are proud to be a Fairtrade university and have been since 2005. Along with Leeds University Union we sell Fairtrade foods in all shops and food outlets on campus and we're passionate about raising awareness of Fairtrade.
The Fairtrade label guarantees a better deal for disadvantaged producers in the developing world.
