Policy on Research Ethics

This policy provides a framework to ensure that all research is conducted in accordance with fundamental ethical principles. It applies with equal force to projects undertaken by staff or students of the University in any location, including joint work with third party organisations.

The University is committed to maintaining the highest standards of rigour and integrity in its research. As a component of this commitment, the University requires that all research projects which involve human participants, or their tissues, or their personal data should receive research ethics approval before they commence.
