The University of Derby Publication Scheme

  • To help with our obligations under FOI, University of Derby has already produced a Publication Scheme.
  • This details the types of information the University routinely provides to the public and how the public may access the information.
  • It includes things like the University structure and organisation, its services and procedures, practices, and guidelines.
  • The public has the right to ask for information which is not contained in the University Publication Scheme.
