Freedom of Information

Leeds Trinity University > Freedom of Information
​Leeds Trinity University is a public authority that is obliged to meet the requirements of the Freedom of Information Act.

Every Higher Education Institution (HEI) is required to specify what information they publish under the Freedom of Information Act 2000, including how the information is made available and whether it is available free of charge or needs to be purchased. 
The Act makes two provisions:
  • Leeds Trinity University should maintain a list of all the information it makes available as a matter of routine known as the Publication Scheme.
  • Any person that makes a request for information is entitled to be informed in writing whether the University holds the information of the description specified or not. The response is communicated within a specified time limit when the information is held by Leeds Trinity.

Publication Scheme

Leeds Trinity follows the model Publication Scheme introduced by the UK's Information Commissioner on 1 January 2009 for the purposes of the Freedom of Information Act.

Searching the Publication Scheme

We have collected all our information into Classes of Information to provide easy access. Our Publication Scheme allows you to browse and see what information is available. You can access the information on the website once you've located what you need. Where direct access is not possible, you'll be told how the information can be obtained.

Publication​ Scheme item charges
