Publication Scheme

The following is the publication scheme for Wolfson College, University of Oxford.

It follows the standard format required by the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) from January 2009. It sets out what information the College publishes or intends to publish, how the information can be accessed and whether or not a charge will be made for it.
