TS00130 Research Ethics

Academic Year 2019/2020

All students who intend to recruit human participants for their study are obliged to ensure that they have either full ethical approval or exemption from full ethical review. No two studies are quite the same therefore, in order to be ethically compliant, students should be clear about the ethical approval and exemption process. A project may require a full ethical review because it is dealing with a vulnerable group or a sensitive topic or it may only require an exemption from full ethical review. A good sense of what your study is about and a clear understanding of recruiting participants and managing data are key when submitting an application for ethical approval or exemption.
