A research permission is always needed where students or staff are informants or objects of research.

Approval of research permission
The research permission is primarily granted for research and thesis work that contribute to the development of Arcada’s operations and to relevant national research.
In case of a granted research permission, information concerning the research, contact details and a link to the research questionnaire will be published on the students and the staff intranet. E-mailing will only be used with special consideration and personal data will only be handed in exceptional circumstances. By limiting the use of personal data Arcada wants to secure the data protection of the students and the staff, ensure the validity of the research project and prevent research exhaustion.
