The HRA also provides a decision tool to enable students to decide whether or not their study is research. These types of studies would not need to apply for HRA approval but will still require a governance review to be take place within the trust.
The HRA offer bite-size eLearning modules that provide guidance for students and supervisors in setting up Research.
If a student requires trust signatures for their Independent Peer Review (IPR) Form, this is sent to firstname.lastname@example.org. A member of the Research Support Team will be in touch and signatures will then be obtained.
Students external to the trust may require HR arrangements for their research. This will be assessed as part of the governance process. For more information please visit Honorary Contracts
