Faculty of Education: Ethical Clearance for Research

Students will need to prepare for ethical clearance for any research to be conducted as part of their studies. The ethical clearance form can be obtained from the ethics office by emailing barclaya@ufs.ac.za.

This form needs to be completed electronically and emailed back to the ethics office, along with electronic copies of all the required supporting documents, as indicated on the form.

Students can also receive assistance with this at the Faculty Ethics office:
Room 13
Winkie Direko Building.

Students need to work closely with their study supervisors to prepare their application for ethical clearance for the research they intend doing as part of their studies. Once the application is submitted, it will be forwarded to the faculty ethics board for review and the applicant will be informed whether clearance has been granted or not. In many cases, recommendations will be made for adjustments to the ethical clearance application before it is granted.

No research proposal will be accepted for title registration unless this ethical clearance process has been completed. Also please note that ethical clearance needs to be obtained before your research commences, and not during or after the research has been done.

Clearance will not be granted for research that has already been completed.
