Ethics Approval for Taught Masters and Undergraduate Students

All independent research undertaken by taught Masters and undergraduate students, whether primary (involving fieldwork with human beings) or secondary (involving work which draws on already published sources), requires ethical approval.

Every Faculty has an Ethics Committee which deals with applications for ethical approval. Proposals must be submitted to and approved by the ethics committee before fieldwork or any data collection can commence.
