Freedom of Information

These pages provide practical and straightforward advice on how to request information from the University under the Freedom of Information Act (FOI).

A Freedom of Information (FOI) request is when an individual asks for a piece of information from a public body such as the University. The information will be shared unless there is a legal reason not to, or gathering the information will be very time consuming.

A publication scheme is designed to make information readily available to the public without the need for FOI requests. You can see what information is available by checking the University publication scheme.

Information not included in the publication scheme can be requested under the Freedom of Information Act. 

In accordance with the FOI Code of Practice, we publish statistics regarding our performance of handling FOI requests.
