A contract is formed between you and the University of St Mark & St John as soon as you accept the offer of a place on a programme of study offered by the University. The terms of this contract are set out below and your acceptance of a place and enrolment as a student of the University are expressly subject to them.
HESA and the organisations listed above will use the information mainly to produce statistics. This may result in information being published and released to other approved users, including academic researchers and commercial organisations. Your record will not be used in a way that could affect you personally and the organisations will take precautions to reduce the risk of you being identified from the information once it is published and released.
While you are a student, we will need to keep your contact details. These do not form part of your HESA record, so HESA and the organisations listed above cannot use this record to contact you.
Towards the end of your studies, we will pass your contact details to the organisation that has been contracted to carry out the National Student Survey. That organisation will use your details only for that purpose, and will then delete them.
About six months after you graduate, we will contact you to ask you to fill in the HESA ‘Destination of Leavers from HE’ survey. We will not give your contact details to HESA. You might be included in a sample of leavers who are surveyed again a few years after they graduate. If so, we will pass your contact details to the organisation that has been contracted to carry out that survey. That organisation will use your details only for that purpose, and will then delete them. (If you do not want to take part in this second survey, please let us know).
Under the Data Protection Act 1998, you have the right to a copy of the information HESA holds about you. If you have any concerns about your information being used for these purposes, please contact HESA.
