The Freedom of Information Act 2000 (FOIA) provides the general public with the right of access to recorded information held by public authorities, including universities.
The classes of information we publish are listed in our Publication Scheme.
Many documents can be accessed from the Policies section of this website and are also available in paper copy from the contacts indicated in the scheme. Alternative formats may be arranged by special request, but there may be a charge to cover production costs.
