Technology Ethics Procedures

According to University regulations all research projects need to undergo ethical review. This includes:

  • Undergraduate and postgraduate final year projects on all degree programmes (eg HND, BSc, MSc)
  • Research degree projects (eg MPhil, PhD)
  • Research Grant applications made by staff
  • Contract research and consultancy
