Submit a freedom of information request (FOI)

(If you want information about yourself, you need to submit a subject access request under data protection legislation, rather than a FOI request.)

The Freedom of Information Act 2000 entitles you to access recorded information held by public authorities, subject to a number of exemptions. 

To submit a request, please complete the form below and attach it to an email sent to the Information Compliance Team (ICT) at

The ICT will aim to respond to your request within 20 working days of receipt. 

You may find what you are looking for on the University’s website, which includes detailed information on the following: 

•    Undergraduate Admissions (breakdown by course, college, school type, ethnicity, disadvantage)
•    Graduate Admissions 
•    Final Degree results
•    Current students 
•    Staff
•    Financial Statements



Limits of Disclosure

The University will disclose information wherever possible. However, in certain circumstances, it will be necessary to employ one of the exemptions to the general requirement to release information. In any case where information is refused, the University will specify which exemption is being claimed and why. All requests for information will be carefully considered on their own merits and with close regard to the public interest. Further information on your rights under the FOIA is available from the Information Commissioner’s Office



If you are not satisfied with the response to your request, you may ask the Head of Information Compliance to review it.
