Research Ethics is a worldwide set of principles governing how any research involving interaction between the researcher and other humans or human tissue or data relating to humans, animals, or the environment, is designed, managed, and conducted.

Wrexham University is committed to maintaining the highest standards of ethics, rigour, and integrity in all its research. It seeks to protect the dignity, rights, and welfare of all those involved in the research it produces. To fulfil this commitment, the University requires that all research conducted under the auspices of the University which involves human participants, human material, personal data, animals, or research which may impact the environment, must receive research ethics approval before it commences. This applies with equal force to projects undertaken by staff or students of the University in any location, including joint work with third-party organisations.
