Information concerning the progress of students through their course of study is kept in confidential files. This is used when staff write references to companies where you are seeking employment. In giving a company the name of a member of staff as a referee, you are giving the University permission to divulge details from such confidential files to the company.
The University requires departments to only keep such files for one year after graduation but, in your best interests, this Department has agreed to keep files for up to six years after you have graduated.
Student Services Information Desk (SSiD) in the Union building offers the facilities for students to view and update their own student record online (e.g. change of address).
Personal information will be held and used in accordance to the Data Protection Act.
