All students need to complete an online ethical clearance form. This is accessible via RIG: https://rig.ukzn.ac.za. All postgrads are automatically registered on RIG: use your usual UKZN login details.
Once you have logged in, top right of the next page, click on the contents option and then ethical applications.
Undertake a preliminary literature review and draw up a research proposal for your supervisor. Check whether ethical clearance is needed

It is a requirement to supply UKZN with one electronic copy (pdf) for the Library. The pdf copy, which should be in a single file of the entire document is uploaded onto ResearchSpace for public access. These copies must be given to the relevant Higher Degrees office.
