Submission Deadlines & Ethics Review Dates

Full Ethics Review only

HREC and AREC Meeting Dates and Deadlines for submissions for 2022-23 are detailed below.

The AREC dates are at the bottom of this page and also available on the AREC Intranet.

Please note the following:

  • there is a strict deadline date (see below) for the receipt of your application form - you are advised to submit early as there will be no opportunity to correct any errors beyond the deadline date;
  • submissions for full review should be submitted online via SISweb/Infohub - not by email;
  • there is a limit of 10 submissions per committee per month - submit early;
  • it is the researcher's responsibility to ensure that their submission is on the latest version of the application form  - from this website only - click here;
  • submissions should include the correct supporting documents ( HREC Only:  include the HREC Support Document Template).

The deadline dates for submitting applications to either the HRECs or the AREC are usually 14-16 days in advance of the meeting - this allows for the processing of the submission and the time required to carry out the review by committee.

PLEASE NOTE: submissions received at the last minute on incorrect or incomplete forms, or after the deadline, will be returned to the applicant - no exceptions. Researchers, and where applicable, supervisors, are responsible for the quality of their submissions.

ALL SUBMSSIONS MUST BE RECEIVED BY 5PM (GMT) ON THE DEADLINE DATE BELOW
