Ethics approval

We are committed to maintaining the highest ethical standards across all of our many research areas.

To ensure that our research has a positive impact, all our researchers and research students must abide by our rules of ethical research.

These rules ensure the integrity of your work and help maintain a safe and progressive research environment.

Any research project conducted at Monash, involving human subjects, animals or biohazards, or that is of a culturally sensitive nature, must be approved by the appropriate ethics committee.

Once you receive your offer letter, you need to make an appointment with your supervisor to complete our ethical research practices form, which comes with your offer letter.

This form must be submitted when you enrol.

Full details of our ethical research standards and procedures can be found in the Handbook for Doctoral Degrees and the Handbook for Research Master's Degrees.
