Ethics

The principles of good research practice encourage those involved in research to consider the wider consequences of their research and engage with practical, ethical and intellectual challenges inherent in high quality research. Research at the University of Leeds is conducted according to the principles of academic excellence, community, integrity, inclusiveness and professionalism. In accordance with the University's research ethics policy, ethical review is needed for all research involving human participants or their data or the potential for adverse environmental impact.  You should allow a minimum of six weeks to apply for University ethical review.

In addition, we are dedicated to teaching Ethics across our programmes. We hope our students leave us with a developed sense of place, difference, and tolerance for others, and with the ability to reflect intelligently on potential risks and the moral/ethical issues involved in their work.
