Anyone conducting research projects from or at Deakin involving human participants (surveys, interviews, experiments, exercises, etc.) requires prior ethics approval from the Deakin University Human Research Ethics Committee (DU-HREC) or a Faculty HEAG.
Your supervisor will advise you on the Committee to which you need to submit your research project.
All low risk research projects from HMNBS staff & students may be submitted to the HEAG-H for ethics review.
Any project with a higher than low level of risk must be submitted to DU-HREC for review. Further information on the human research ethics process, guidelines and application forms/procedures are available from:
