The university regularly receives enquiries from parents and other third parties regarding students or staff, however in most cases the Data Protection Act strictly prevents us from disclosing information. There are however some circumstances where disclosure would be allowed – for example to a criminal investigation agency. In addition a student or staff member could consent to information being shared – for example to supply a reference to an employer/agency.
Please complete this form to request data, this us to ensure that the individual is aware of the data share and/or has consented to the data share and/or that another legal authority is in place to allow for the data share. There is no charge for this however if your request is unfounded or excessive or repeats previous requests then there may be an administrative charge – you will be informed of this as soon as we able to confirm the nature of your request.
