Ethics for Students

Integrating Ethical Thinking and Behaviour in the Classroom

  • Ethics for students programme
  • 1
  • 2
Our programme prepares and enables students to adopt ethical thinking and behaviour in learning and research at all levels across the institution. 
Ethics for students is not only about theoretical knowledge of ethics, but it is mostly about dealing with applied ethics, including changing behaviours through character formation, dealing with ethical dilemmas, coaching and institutionalised standards, norms, procedures, awards and sanctions, as developed in the Ethics for Institutions Programme.
A general introduction to ethics at the early stage at undergraduate level prepares first-year students on the implications of ethical behaviour in learning and research at university level and in society at large.
For graduates who wish to further their research activities on applied ethics in the main disciplines such as business, ICT, environment, infrastructure, agriculture, medical and healthcare research, etc, they can differentiate the applicability of ethics in research and better assess possible legal responsibilities of researchers in certain fields such as research on life and biodiversity.
