Business School Ethics Review Committee

The University of Sydney Business School administers an Ethics Review Committee that processes all low-risk applications on behalf of the University Ethics Office including Honours, Masters, PhD and staff projects.

Low risk applications include those that DO NOT involve:

  • working with culturally and linguistically diverse people
  • overseas travel
  • working with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people
  • women who are pregnant
  • working with children
  • research involving deception
