Submission and Meeting Dates

The Faculty Human Ethics Committee will meet 10 times in 2020. Applications for ethics approval are to be submitted via Themis by the Faculty Human Ethics Advisory Group (FHEAG) Submission Date. ‘Minimal Risk’ applications are reviewed and approved at Faculty level, therefore applicants need only note the dates in the first two columns. Higher-risk ‘Standard Project’ applications require additional review by the University Human Ethics Sub-Committee (HESC), therefore applicants must note the relevant dates in all four columns.
