Dear Ms [name removed]

I refer to your request received by the University on 2 October 2013 (e-mail below). The information you request can be found below.

Please note that as the University covered the costs of travel and accommodation, the University holds information on questions 1, 2, and 4.

1. What airline and class of ticket was provided for this journey (return) and at what cost?
British Airways & Virgin Atlantic. Economy Class £948.34

2. Which hotel and what type of room was provided, for how many days/nights, and at what cost?
Hyatt; 4 days and 3 nights, Courtyard Studio Room; £1226.40

3. Was the student president paid his salary for this visit or was it holiday?
The Student President was asked by the University to participate in the launch in his official capacity. As he is employed by the Students Association and not by the University, the University does not hold this information, therefore the University is relying on the Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002 Section 17 (1) (b) Information not held.

4. What activities did the student president undertake during his visit?
The Student President was the representative of the GCU student body at the opening of GCU New York Campus. He gave a welcome speech on behalf of the University at the launch. In addition, he undertook outreach work to other New York universities and peer Student Presidents with the focus of working to develop further opportunities for GCU students to undertake student exchange.
