The Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002 (FOISA) gives everyone the right to access the wealth of information held by Scottish public authorities, including the University of the West of Scotland.
To meet our obligations under this legislation UWS provides access to information on request and maintains a Publication Scheme that lists the types of information, which the institution has already made available.
Details of the information made available, how to access the information and what it might cost are provided in the Guide to Information below. In addition the Guide contains details of the environmental information that we publish routinely under the Environmental Information (Scotland) Regulation 2004 (EI(S)Rs).
