Generally for legal reasons we cannot disclose information about students without their consent.

With regard to information on students provided to us, the focus of our concern is the wellbeing of students and the University community. This means that we have to reserve the right  to use and disclose any information given to us as we think appropriate. This may occasionally apply even where those passing the information would prefer it was kept confidential. If you have any concerns about confidentiality please raise those at the time you share information.
