Guidance for undertaking empirical fieldwork on campus during Covid-19
All fieldwork undertaken at this time is subject to current public health guidance and university policy.
Before seeking to undertake any empirical ‘in person’ data collection on campus during the Covid-19 pandemic, consider if you really need to collect data in face-to-face format or whether it is feasible to use distanced or virtual data collection methods instead.
If there is no meaningful alternative to collecting empirical data in physical settings on campus, you must adhere to the most up-to-date guidance by QUB related to risk and safety in terms of Covid-19. Please consult the documents below before you plan your fieldwork and complete a risk assessment.
Additional documents and guidelines are available via the QUB Estates website.
The above policy and guidance documents regulate the use of campus space for teaching, learning and research.
