Guidance fact-sheet

To the right can be found:

1. The University's standard form for making comments on a University research ethics application form (the 'comments form' is then sent to your department's Ethics Administrator) - this is not required if your department is using the online application process;

2. Training material: In the 2014/15 and 2015/16 academic years the UREC delivered a number of training workshops for ethics reviewers. Information on the workshops (e.g. final reports, which include case studies reviewed + the key points made on them by ethics reviewers who attended the workshops) is available on the right.

Please Note: If you are an Ethics Reviewer for Student Services, details of the Ethics Review Procedure can be found here (although the principles of ethics review set out in the above guidance still apply)
