The Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002 requires public authorities to maintain a publication scheme approved by the Scottish Information Commissioner.
The purpose of the publication scheme is to provide information proactively in an easily accessible form so that it can be accessed without having to make an individual request. The College Publication Scheme sets out what classes of information the College will publish or intends to publish, how the information is made available and whether there is a fee.
All requests should be returned to the FOI officer at:
Edinburgh College - Milton Road Campus
24 Milton Road East
Since 1 January 2005, you are able to request information not contained in this Publication Scheme. If you wish to request information either contained or not contained in the Publication Scheme you should complete and return the Freedom of Information Request Form.
Accessing Personal Information (Right of Access)
Personal information is covered by the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) 2018 and the Data Protection Act 2018. You are entitled to request the following from the college (free of charge):
- Confirmation that the college is processing your personal data;

- Other supplementary information (including the purpose of processing and categories of personal data)
A full list of the information you are entitled to request from the college is available on the Information Commissioner’s Office website.
