Freedom of Information

How to request information about the University under the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA).

A Freedom of Information (FOI) request is when an individual asks for a piece of information from a public body such as the University. 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 public without the need for FOI requests. Information not included in the publication scheme can be requested under the Freedom of Information Act. 

Following the FOI Code of Practice, we publish statistics about our handling of FOI requests.
