Dear S Abekov,
Your request was received on 6 September 2018 and I am dealing with it under the terms of the
Freedom of Information Act 2000 (‘the Act’).
I’d like to request the statistics of any students (undergraduate or master) with Kyrgyz (or
Kirghiz) nationality or coming from Kyrgyzstan in the 1968-2018 period that have studied at the
university. I am interested in the number of such students each year. If you hold any information
on such students prior to 1968, I’d like that to be included too.
The requested information, insofar as it is held, is attached. Please note that the attached document
should not be copied, reproduced or used except in accordance with the law of copyright.
If you are unhappy with the service you have received in relation to your request and wish to make a
complaint or request an internal review of this decision, you should contact us quoting the reference
number above. The University would normally expect to receive your request for an internal review
within 40 working days of the date of this letter and reserves the right not to review a decision where
there has been undue delay in raising a complaint. If you are not content with the outcome of your
review, you may apply directly to the Information Commissioner for a decision. Generally, the
Information Commissioner cannot make a decision unless you have exhausted the complaints
procedure provided by the University. The Information Commissioner may be contacted at: The
Information Commissioner’s Office, Wycliffe House, Water Lane, Wilmslow, Cheshire, SK9 5AF (https://ico.org.uk/)

the answer is zero.
