Research Ethics is a world-wide set of principles governing the way any research involving interaction between the researcher and other humans or human tissue or data relating to humans, is designed, managed and conducted. Those same principles apply to you the researcher, whether you are an untrained undergraduate or an internationally recognised scholar in your field.
In order to support the University with regard to Research Ethics, we aim to:
'provide a timely and efficient service that ensures transparent, professional and proportionate ethical review of research, with consistent outcomes. This is supported by clear, accessible guidance and training for applicants and committees.'
