Details This paper discusses observations made during evaluation of the student feedback of trials of the UNESCO bioethics core curriculum completed for Units 1 through 17 carried out by Ritsumeikan Asia Pacific University in Japan. This paper presents some of the results derived from students‘ responses including their comments and key concerns found in the open-ended questions. The discussion of observations from this evaluation process may be separated into two parts. First, the results analysis will describe the patterns observed from the statistical data collected after coding the comments and responses. The responses were coded into various categories based on the identification of keywords that reflect various levels of critical thinking and personal moral development, of which students had gained from their understanding of the ethical concepts and issues.
