Bachelor Courses on 3Rs Education

Goal: Good 3Rs Practice
Mandate: Education

The 3RCC surveyed the institutions to map existing courses on 3Rs or containing 3Rs information. Based on the scarcity of 3Rs education at the Bachelor level, the Swiss 3RCC recommends a minimal educational program dedicated to the replacement, reduction and refinement of animal experimentation (the 3Rs Principle) as part of the core Bachelor courses in the following degrees: life sciences, bioengineering, medical and veterinary sciences, environmental sciences, agricultural sciences, pharmacy, and any other degree teaching evidence derived from animal research.
