Freedom of Information (FOI)
The Freedom of Information Act 2000 came into force on 1 January 2005. It gives everyone a right to request access to information held by the University. The Act applies to all the University's records (electronic and hard copy), including emails, letters and committee papers.
However, this does not mean the University is now obliged to give away all the information for which it is asked. The University may still not be able to release information for a number of reasons, such as data protection, confidentiality, health and safety or to protect its commercial interests.
Please use the menu on the left-hand side to view detailed information on how the University is committed to complying with the Freedom of Information Act 2000.
