Masters and Undergraduate students with a research component to their degree are also invited to complete the appropriate discipline specific research Integrity course.


This could be your first introduction to Research Integrity before exploring the more detailed Research Integrity course, or a refresher for the more experienced.

The course consists of a core module which is an overview of the responsible conduct of research and the challenges researchers face in meeting them and five optional modules.

Optional modules include:

  1. Human subjects protections
  2. The humane use and care of animals in research

  4. Safety and health
  5. Intellectual property

The course is short and easy to digest, covers the basics and could help any greater learning needs. There is no University of Nottingham specific content. The entire course takes approx. 45 minutes to complete.
