Newcastle University defines any research undertaken outside and/or with collaborators outside of the European Economic Area (EEA) as international.

The only exception is where research is undertaken at Newcastle University Singapore or Newcastle University Malaysia.  Research conducted by researchers at these campuses can be classed as local for the purposes of ethical review if:

  • The research is undertaken within the local country (i.e. Singapore or Malaysia) and
  • The research does not involve collaborators outside of the local country or EEA.

For further information regarding ethical approval at international campuses, please see the Ethical Approval of International Research and Research at International Campuses [PDF; 110KB].
