What is a Publication Scheme?
The Freedom of Information Act 2000 requires every public authority to adopt a Publication Scheme.
The Publication Scheme is a document which sets out the kinds of information that a public authority makes routinely available, or intends to publish. It also specifies how the information it describes can be accessed and whether a charge will be made.
The University of Surrey has adopted the model publication scheme prepared for the higher education sector and is committed to publishing the information it describes. The Publication Scheme is intended to help staff, students, prospective students and members of the public to find the information they are interested in.
Information in paper copy
If you would prefer to receive the information in a paper copy, please contact the Information Compliance Unit at the address below who will arrange for copies of the relevant web pages to be sent to you. A single copy of the information will be supplied free of charge.
A very small amount of the information is available in paper copy only. Where this is the case, please use the contact details below to request copies. Please give your name, telephone number or email address as well as a postal address in case the University needs to clarify your request.
If you have a disability and require information to be presented in a particular format, please contact the Information Compliance Unit at the address below.
The information supplied through the Publication Scheme is protected by copyright. Where the copyright belongs to the University of Surrey the information may be used for personal non-commercial use. It is not to be modified, reproduced, transmitted, published, or otherwise made available without the consent of the University. Should the University give consent to re-use the information, the University must be credited as such.

Accessing information included in the Publication Scheme
The Publication Scheme is divided into seven sections. Each section contains classes of information. For each class the Publication Scheme contains a description of the information published by the University which fits into that class, the format in which the information is available and whether a charge will be made for supplying that information.
Most of the information described in the Publication Scheme is available online through the University of Surrey website and a direct link is provided from the Scheme to the relevant piece of information. Occasionally the link will be to the website of an external organisation (such as to HESA – the Higher Education Statistics Agency). In these cases, provision of the information is the responsibility of that organisation and not of the University.
