Education research invariably concerns sensitive ethics practice. The process of applying for ethics approval has recently changed as the University moves towards implementing a university-wide ethics application form.
The School of Health and Education has an ethics Wiki site, and the Education department has its own sub-committee made up of senior researchers to approve ethics application forms and process them efficiently.
Support will be offered at Research Club, including planning an application, considering the category of approval required, types of research that can be approved, understanding the new application form, guidance on completing information and consent documents, internal and external application data collection and the IRAS application process.
Please visit our Education Ethics site for forms and guidelines.
