Information for student supervisors
When using health information, sensitive personal information or other personal information in a bachelor or master’s thesis, you, as a supervisor, must also be aware that there are a number of requirements for such use and that the students must have the right permissions before the work can get started.
What responsibilities does the student supervisors have for the personal information to participants (informants or respondents) in student research?
Student supervisors are responsible for ensuring that the privacy of respondents or informants in student research, at a bachelor or master’s level, is taken into consideration by the student.
The student supervisor’s task includes the following tasks:
- assisting student researchers at a bachelor and master’s level to ensure that the research follows the same guidelines that applies for project managers in research projects (in Norwegian)
- ensuring that student researchers respect the guidelines that apply to the processing of personal data in bachelor or master’s degree studies (in Norwegian). If control routines are not located locally, this must be created. This is the dean and head of department’s responsibility.
- report discrepancies arising from processing information about respondents or informants in student research. This should be done to the nearest manager and done according to the deviation routines at UiO (in Norwegian).
