I trust that this provides the information you require, however, if you
are dissatisfied with the University’s handling of your request for
information under the Act, you have 40 days from the date of our response
to request a formal review of our decision.  However, you are encouraged
to contact me in the first instance, to determine if I can resolve your
concerns informally as this may lead to a quicker resolution of your

Internal review of the University’s handling of your request. All

dealt with, you also have the right to apply to the Scottish Information
