Dear Applicant,
 
Thank you for your information request dated 19^th November 2019 around
PGT admission statistics.  Please accept my apologies for the delay in my
response due to a high volume of governance case work coupled with limited
staff resource, I hope this has not inconvenienced you.  Your request has
been handled under the Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002. 
 
Please see our answers below in red for ease of reference which we hope
you find useful.
 

 1. List of all postgraduate taught courses for 2019/2020

As you may have seen, this information is available publically on our
website therefore this is exempt from release under Section 25(1)
obtainable other than by requesting.
 

 2. Number of applicants (all postgraduate programmes)

13719
 

 3. Number of offers made (all postgraduate programmes)

11640
 

 4. Number of Chinese applications and offers made (all postgraduate
programmes)

We do not hold applicant ethnicity data, therefore this information is
exempt from release under Section 17 of the Freedom of Information
(Scotland) Act 2002 – Information not held.  We would only gather
ethnicity data once a student has enrolled. Details of this can be found
publically on our website at this following page: 
[1]https://www.hw.ac.uk/services/equality-d...
 
If you are looking for the ethnicity of applicants, it may be worth
contacting [2]SAAS who might be able to assist you.  It may also be
worthwhile checking out [3]HESA –though they may not hold applicant
ethnicity data.
