Ethical Approval (Non-Clinical)

The University of Glasgow requires ethical review of all non-clinical research involving human subjects, whether undertaken by University staff, students or by external researchers using University facilities or participants.

College and School Ethics Committees exist within each College to look at all non-clinical research projects involving human subjects, on a mandatory basis. Submissions do not come direct to the central University Ethics Committee. Please contact your College research office or College Ethics Officer (details of officers are below under the University Ethics Committee section) for more information. Guidance documents provided to the Faculties appear below.

Funding Councils' Ethics Guidance

The University insurance cover is restricted in certain, specific circumstances, eg, the use of hazardous materials, work overseas and numbers of participants in excess of 5000.  All such projects must be referred to Research and Enterprise before ethical approval is sought
