The privacy of students is important to us and the University takes care to safeguard it. Information will be used and stored in accordance with data protection laws and other applicable legislation.
Student data will be stored on secure databases including the Higher Education Access Tracker (HEAT) and used to administer participation in outreach activities and projects. For research and monitoring purposes only, this data may also be shared back with your school or college, with government and funding bodies and with our collaborative partners to help evaluate the effectiveness of this activity. The project and its partners will not use your record in a way that would affect you individually and we will not release data to anyone who is unauthorised.
We will retain records securely for the duration of the longitudinal project, and will review our retention periods annually as the project develops in line with ICO guidance and other best practice in the sector.
