Guidance on Applying for Divisional/School Review

A limited number of Divisions/Schools across the University have the ability to provide ethical review of low/medium risk projects at Division/School level, providing they adhere to a specified set of criteria. As this criteria varies between Divisions/Schools it is imperative that you take the time to read the guidance notes below if you wish to apply for ethical review at Division/School level. Please also ensure you discuss this with your supervisor as mistakes can result in substantial delays to the ethical review process. If you do not see your Division/School listed below then it does not currently have this avenue available and you will need to apply for ethical review via UREC. 

Guidance Notes for Divisional/School Review

If you have any queries as to whether the specifics of your project meet the criteria listed in the guidance notes above, please first discuss these with your supervisor. If after doing this you still require additional assistance, please see table below for a list of useful contacts
