Publication scheme

We comply with the Freedom of Information Act 2000 (FOIA) to promote an understanding of the work undertaken within the University, which we achieve by being transparent about the way we make our decisions and by providing clear information about our policies and processes. This is primarily achieved through our publication scheme; however we also deal with individual requests for information which is not included in the scheme and provide advice and assistance if necessary.
