UNSW staff members (full time, part time, conjoint appointments) or students enrolled in a UNSW post graduate course will automatically have an ethics online account set up.

To access Animal Ethics Online, you need to enter a Username and Password. Your Username is your Staff or Student ID (which is usually prefixed by "s" or "z" followed by a 7 digit number); your Password is your UniPass ID as assigned by the Information Technology Service Centre (ITS).

Note: Contact ITS on 9385 1333 if you do not know your UniPass ID, have forgotten it, or have problems with your UniPass.

For researchers wishing to create an Animal Ethics application for the first time, you will require endorsement from your Head of School (HoS) before access to create applications will be granted. Email animalethics@unsw.edu.au the details of your HoS so that we can seek such endorsement.
