REQUEST FOR INFORMATION UNDER THE FREEDOM OF INFORMATION ACT
Thank you for your e-mail dated 25th November 2017 requesting information about students
paying by Bitcoin. Please see below the information you have requested:
The University accepted payments of tuition fees made in BitCoin to its partner party
payment processor. This partner receives the BitCoin and then remits the equivalent in
sterling to the University. Therefore, the University has not received BitCoin and does not
hold a BitCoin balance. Two students made payments in this way.
If you are unhappy with the way your request has been handled, you can ask for it to be
reviewed under the University’s Freedom of Information Complaints Procedure. To request a
review, please contact the Information Governance Manager at the above address or by e-
mail at email@example.com.
Further information is enclosed with this letter.
