Gaining access to the NWU to conduct research (RDGC Process)

If a researcher would like permission to access the NWU to include the university’s staff or students as participants in their research study or if they would like to gain access to data (held by the NWU) for research purposes, a specific process needs to be followed.  All such requests are reviewed by the Research Data Gatekeeper Committee (RDGC) under guidance of the registrar.

To apply to the RDGC for permission to access such data or the relevant NWU stakeholders, please complete the following application form: 

1. RDGC Application Form for General Research Data Collection 

2. RDGC Application Form for Internal Operational Use Data Collection

For more information regarding the RDGC’s purpose and Terms of Reference (ToR), please contact Mr Nkosinathi Machine.
