When planning to undertake a research project, you should ensure your project undergoes appropriate ethical assessment/review. This is especially so if the proposed research design involves human participants or their data.

You need to consider which ethics committee is relevant to review your project:

  • St George’s Research Ethics Committee (SGREC) reviews research being undertaken by St George’s staff or students.

  • All joint faculty staff should submit applications to the Joint Faculty Research Ethics Committee (FREC).

  • All students who are registered through (their degree is being awarded by) Kingston University should seek ethical approval from the Joint Faculty Research Ethics Committee (FREC).

All students who are registered through (their degree is being awarded by) St George’s should seek ethical approval from the Joint Research and Enterprise Services (JRES)/St George’s Ethics Committee (contact SGREC coordinator).

St George's Research Ethics Committee reviews research being undertaken by St George's, University of London staff or students, and research that is taking place on St George's property. 

As a researcher, you should ensure that your research undergoes appropriate ethical review. This also aids St George's compliance with the Concordat to Support Research Integrity. It is important that you familiarise yourself with the concordat to ensure you are aware of your responsibilities under it as a researcher. Download the concordat (PDF).
