Under the University's Ethics Approval Requirements, all research involving human participants, their material or data must receive ethics approval.  Researchers therefore need to submit a research ethics application to the School of Education’s Research Ethics Committee for approval before commencing their research.

  • Please download the form and guidance notes here.  Please email the completed application form, consent form(s) and a cover email requesting ethics review to the Ethics Secretary.
  • Please note that it is the responsibility of the Principal Investigator to add any research projects involving human participants, their material or data to the University’s Human Subjects Database for insurance purposes.  (The Human Subjects Database is accessible through QOL under ‘My Research’.)
