Ethical approval for research and coursework

If you are collecting data from or about human participants as part of your studies, you must obtain ethical approval before you begin your research and start contacting participants.

Our ethical approval guidelines provide important information about completing the process. We have provided a participant information form and selection of consent forms for you to modify. For more detailed information, please refer to guidance from the Research and Enterprise Office.
