We aim to send the information within 20 days of receipt of your request and any required fee. For a minimum charge of £5.00 plus postage, we will provide copies of up to 10 pages to each person making a request. There will be an additional charge of 50 pence for each additional page requested. The University reserves the right to charge these fees but, may, at its own discretion, waive any charges in excess of £20.
