Information on policy

Staff in professional support services are available to provide guidance around any of the research-related policies from research ethics to engaging with external organisations. 

Staff in Research Strategy and Policy regularly engage with policy makers and organisations supporting University research activity to enable them to provide regular updates on policy and best practice through our research fora. 

Where there is an international element to the policy, the International Relations Office can provide expert advice and guidance.
