Freedom of information

We routinely publish a wide range of documented information in accordance with the Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002.

Freedom of information legislation requires the University to proactively publish certain types of information through what is called a "publication scheme". For example we publish information about:

  • how we make decisions and governance arrangements
  • policies and procedures
  • the services we provide to students, staff and others
  • how we manage research
  • our finances.

We produce a "Guide to Information" which helps you to find and access the information we make available through our publication scheme. It also explains how you can make a freedom of information request for other recorded, University-held information.
