Ethics

The RCM expects all staff and students to observe the highest ethical and professional standards in their research. Those wishing to undertake research involving the participation of other people should adhere to the Conservatoires UK (CUK) Good Research Conduct and Ethics Procedure.

These are detailed in the documents below. Deadlines for ethical approval can be found in the CUK Ethical Approval Form.

In accordance with the ‘Prevent’ responsibilities of higher education bodies, intended to ‘prevent’ radicalisation/extremism, research students and staff will need to seek approval within their own institution to gain access to electronic or other material related to subjects concerning radicalisation and extremism. Such access will not be withheld where the student or member of staff has good academic reasons to access such material, in accordance with academic freedom principles.
