Points to remember when applying

  • Applicants should submit their application form for School/College review at least four weeks before they intend to commence data collection. It can take up to this length of time to review an application and provide feedback.
  • No data collection can start until ethical approval has been received.
  • Retrospective approval cannot be given.
  • Supervisors need to confirm via e-mail that they support the application. Applications will not be sent for review unless this has been received. If a student writes in an e-mail that their Supervisor has given their approval this will not be accepted as proof of support because it has not come directly from the Supervisor.
