Suitable for all PhD Students
This course is suitable for people in the process of planning their research with human participants. For whether your research includes interviews or experiments involving people, there will be ethical issues you must consider, and a research ethics application to be made as a result.

By the end of this course, participants should be able to:

  • Show an understanding of the reasons for, and uses of, ethical review; Assess what type, and level, of ethical review is required for their work;
  • Plan submission of an application to a relevant committee, one that shows knowledge of ethical issues in research, and which thus covers information commonly required by ethics committees
