2019 Undergraduate Admission Statistics in Selected Subjects

Roedd y cais yn llwyddiannus.

Dear University College London,

I was wondering if it would be possible to produce a breakdown of admissions statistics for a selection of the University's undergraduate courses in the 2019 cycle.

Similar to the format that the University had previously used to disclose the information (https://www.whatdotheyknow.com/request/c...), I hope that the University would provide the latest statistics for:

1. Architecture BSc K100
2. Biochemistry BSc C700
3. Biochemistry MSci CC70
4. Biological Sciences BSc C900
5. Biological Sciences MSci C901
6. Biomedical Sciences BSc B990
7. Chemistry BSc F100
8. Chemistry MSci F101
9. Computer Science BSc G400
10. Computer Science MEng G402
11. Earth Sciences BSc F603
12. Earth Sciences MSci F604
13. Economics BSc (Econ) L100
14. Economics and Statistics BSc (Econ) LG13
15. Education Studies BA X300
16. Engineering (Biochemical) BEng H811
17. Engineering (Biochemical) MEng H813
18. Engineering (Biomedical) BEng HC60
19. Engineering (Biomedical) MEng H160
20. Engineering (Chemical) BEng H800
21. Engineering (Chemical) MEng H801
22. Engineering (Civil) BEng H200
23. Engineering (Civil) MEng H202
24. Engineering (Electronic and Electrical) BEng H600
25. Engineering (Electronic and Electrical) MEng H601
26. Engineering (Mechanical with Business Finance) BEng H1N3
27. Engineering (Mechanical with Business Finance) MEng H1NH
28. Engineering (Mechanical) BEng H300
29. Engineering (Mechanical) MEng H301
30. Engineering and Architectural Design MEng KH11
31. History, Politics and Economics BA 4P47
32. Mathematics MSci G107
33. Mathematics and Physics MSci GF1H
34. Mathematics with Economics MSci G1LC
35. Medicine MBBS BSc A100
36. Natural Sciences MSci FGC0
37. Philosophy BA V500
38. Physics MSci F303
39. Psychology BSc C800
40. Statistics BSc G300
41. Statistics, Economics and Finance BSc GLN0

Furthermore, I'd also like to know about the undergraduate admission statistics for Chinese students (of Chinese nationality) in 2019, including the number of applicants and the number of offers made in general.

I deeply apologize for the inconvenience that my request would inevitably bring. It would also be perfectly fine to send the figures for all the undergraduate courses if you find the task of sorting through these selected subjects too much of a hassle.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Yours faithfully,

Stephen Li

Furthermore, I'd also like to know about the undergraduate admission
statistics for Chinese students (of Chinese nationality) in 2019,
including the number of applicants and the number of offers made in
general.

 

As you can see, exact counts totalling five or less have been
withheld because these are personal data of third parties or, if linked
with other personal identifiers in the public domain, would be likely to
become  personal data. This information has been withheld under section
40(2) of  the FOIA by virtue of s40 (3)(a)(i).

 

Section 40(2) of the FOIA allows a public authority to withhold 
information under the FOIA where (i) the requested information is
personal  data relating to someone other than the requester and (ii) its
disclosure  would breach any of the data protection principles. In this
case we  believe that the requested information could relate to and
identify  individuals and would be considered as their personal data. The
disclosure  of this personal data would not be within the reasonable
expectations of the individuals concerned and it would be unfair to do so;
this therefore breaches the first data protection principle.

 

It is for these reasons that this information is exempt under section
40(2) of the Act.

 

As the section 40(2) exemption is an absolute one, there is no need to
conduct a public interest test. 

 

You are free to use any information supplied for your own use, including
for non-commercial research purposes. The information may also be used for
the purposes of news reporting. However, any other type of re-use, for
example by publishing or issuing copies to the public, will require the
permission of the copyright owner.

complaint or request a review of our decision, please email

Operating Officer, alternatively you should write to:
