Research Ethics

A group of students sat round a table talking

Research ethics are principles that protect the dignity, rights, safety and wellbeing of research participants and researchers.

If you are planning to conduct research involving human participants, personal data or human tissue, you may need to seek approval from the University's Research Ethics Committee. 

301's digital workshop: Ethics Application Explained will help you determine if an ethics application is required for you, and if so, will help you navigate the process. It should be undertaken.
