The University Senate set up a Research Ethics Committee some years ago, and the committee appointed in June 2002 set itself the task of drawing up a set of guidelines.  These guidelines first published in 2004 were reviewed and slightly amended by Senate in September 2007.

For a summary and full details of the guidelines, please click here [PDF].

One of the guidelines states that: Each university member, student or member of staff, undertaking research involving human subjects will fill in a proposal form and present it for approval to the faculty research ethics committee. The form clearly identifies the person taking responsibility for the research and for compliance with the regulations and with Data Protection legislation.

The proposal form, itself revised in September 2015, may be downloaded by clicking on:
