Ethics Approval

Planning to undertake some research? If your research involves gathering information or data from human participants you will need ethics approval before you start.

Studies Involving Human Participants

Any research being undertaken by University of Hertfordshire staff and students must have ethics approval if human participants are involved in the study. This means that if you intend to gather information from humans you must seek ethics approval for your study before you start to collect data and recruit any participants.

You do not need UH ethics approval if your research is limited to using published secondary sources but should speak to your supervisor or School as you may have to make a declaration of secondary research.
