Applying for Ethics Approval

The University has an online Ethics Application System through which you can apply for ethics approval. The system can be accessed via the 'My Services' menu when you log into MUSE, or by clicking on the link below.  You may wish to check your departmental ethics webpage before you begin your application, in case there are any specific departmental arrangements that you need to be aware of.

Helpsheets are available to support the application process:

We also have a series of flowcharts that explain the way in which an application moves through the system, and who is responsible for each stage:
