The College hold and process a student's personal data for a variety of reasons, for example, to keep records, provide support to students and to also track individual academic development. We hold financial data to invoice students correctly and record payments; academic information so we can monitor progression and provide the appropriate teaching support and opportunities. Any further data we hold is in order to help and support our students, as well as fulfil our legal obligations.
We also collect and process personal data of prospective students in order to support academic suitability for admission and enable a smooth and transparent admissions process.
Newbold College of Higher Education takes the security and integrity of all the personal data it holds very seriously. Our systems are secure and do not release information about students to any third parties outside the College unless we have a legal obligation to do so. We do not release information about students to family members or fee payers without the consent of the individual student, except in very serious emergency situations.
The handling of personal data is controlled by the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and associated legislation.
