Unit licences

The Unit Licence is designed to manage data collection to fulfil the requirement of a unit. Unit Licences are available for undergraduate (and some postgraduate) coursework units where students are collecting data. Refer to the Unit License FAQs for further information.

The unit licence is not ethics approval.

It is a licence issued to a specified Unit Coordinator, who undertakes to ensure that the data collection is conducted in an ethical manner.

An application consists of the following:

  • Completed unit licence application form;
  • Unit plan (and, if applicable, a course outline as handed out to students);
  • Completed ethical risk checklist;
  • Information letter;
  • Consent form (if applicable); and
  • Copy of data collection instruments.

Review and approval of the Unit Licence is conducted via the School Human Ethics Subcommittee.  A completed application for a Unit License should be sent to the Research Ethics Team.
