Request for Ethical Approval
All research undertaken at the University needs to secure ethical approval prior to the commencement of fieldwork.
If you are an undergraduate student or a student on a taught postgraduate programme your request for ethical approval will be assessed by your supervisor and possibly one other member of academic staff. Further information should be available in your module handbook.
Research students and staff undertaking research will submit their request for ethical approval through their College Research Ethics Committee.
For undergraduates and taught postgraduate programmes the following forms should be used as appropriate:
- Student taught programme request ethical approval
- Psychology independent study proposal, ethics and risk assessment form
