Ethical review of research

Information about the ethical review of research process can be found on the University website, including links to University and College level ethics committee.

All colleges are in the process of implementing our new Research Management System. As part of this improvement, Ethical Review will take place on a system called Worktribe Ethics. From June 7th, most PGRs will have access to this system for any new applications, for HUMS based PGRs please contact your Ethics Chair for further information.

The Research Ethics & Governance team have set up an online section of resources about the new system and how to use it. This is available here.
