Who can access : Getting accredited
To apply for individual accreditation, you must:
- have an undergraduate degree, including a significant proportion of maths or statistics, or at least three years quantitative research experience
- read and agree to the criteria outlined in Part 2 of the Research Code of Practice and Accreditation Criteria (opens in a new tab)
If you meet these criteria, you can apply through the Research Accreditation Service (RAS) (opens in a new tab)
You do not need to re-apply if you are already accredited.
As part of your application, you will need to complete our safe researcher training and pass a final assessment.
Once you have successfully completed your assessment, you will receive an email from the RAS team confirming your accredited researcher status.
If you have any questions about the application process, email IDS.firstname.lastname@example.org (opens in a new tab)
Accredited researchers can submit an Expression of Interest to access data in the Integrated Data Service (IDS).
