Freedom of information

The University of St Andrews has adopted the Single Model Publication Scheme produced by the Scottish Information Commissioner who is responsible for enforcing the Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002. In adopting the Single Model Publication Scheme, a model 'Guide to Information' was developed and produced for the Higher Education sector which sets out:

  • what information is available in relation to each class of information;
  • what charges, if any, may be applied;
  • how the information is made available and where to find it easily;
  • provides contact details for enquiries and further assistance if required;
  • how to request information that has not been published. 

Introduction to the Guide to Information 

The Guide to Information Introduction (PDF) covers the following:

  • accessing information under the scheme 
  • information that the University may withhold 
  • the University's charging policy 
  • the University's copyright policy
  • how to access information not available under this scheme
  • how to contact the University.
