Failure to comply with ethical review procedures
Any student who does not gain ethical approval before undertaking research will be subject to a penalty as set out in the Procedures for Investigation of Cases of Alleged Academic Misconduct.
If a student makes a significant deviation from the approved research without being granted ethical approval for this deviation this will also be treated under the Procedures for Investigation of Cases of Alleged Academic Misconduct.
