John Dimitroulopoulos

Dear Sir/Madam,

I am requesting data in relation to all of the Group M (undergraduate law) courses offered by your university. For avoidance of doubt, this includes the Scots Law LLB, any Common or Dual-Qualifying degrees, and any Law with a Year Abroad/ Law with a Language/ Joint Honours Law programmes.

-

Please provide the following data in relation to these courses for the 2016/17 and 2017/18 UCAS admissions cycles:

1. The offer rate for applicants who were domiciled in Scotland;
2. The offer rate for applicants who were domiciled in the rest of the UK (‘rUK’);
3. The offer rate for applicants who were domiciled in the rest of the EU (‘rEU’);
4. The offer rate for international/non-EU applicants.

5. The percentage of students who had enrolled on one of these courses having sat Scottish qualifications. For example, if 10 people enrolled in one year, and 6 had sat Scottish qualifications, the percentage would be 60%;
6. The percentage of students who had enrolled on one of these courses having sat A-levels.

7. The average entry tariff for students who enrolled at the university who had sat Scottish qualifications. For example, a student who enrolled after achieving AAAAB at Higher level and AB at Advanced Higher level would have a UCAS tariff of 263;
8. The average entry tariff for students who enrolled at the university who had sat A-levels. For example, a student who enrolled after achieving A*AA at A-level would have a UCAS tariff of 152.

Do let me know if any further clarification is required.

Best Regards,
John Dimitroulopoulos

We look forward to receiving your response and in the meantime, your request is on hold.

Yours sincerely

Hi Jean

The 'offer rate' is:

the number of applicants who were offers by the university for a particular course in a given admissions cycle
divided by
the total number of applicants to that course in a given admissions cycle
multiplied by 100

Do let me know if I can help with anything else.

Yours sincerely,

John Dimitroulopoulos

Dear Mr Dimitroulopoulos

I refer to your request for information. The University's response is attached.

With regard to the tariff questions (Qus 7 & 8), we note that you have asked for the old measure of UCAS tariff but for the sessions asked for, it is the new UCAS tariff values that are available in the datasets that the University has. This measure for tariff is different from what is asked for in that the new tariff counts more qualifications and the values are lower than was seen with the old tariff methodology. The University has provide the new tariff values.

Please find attached a review notice setting out the steps you may take if you are not satisfied with the response provided to your request.

If there are any questions in relation to this request, please contact the University at [Glasgow Caledonian University request email].

Yours sincerely
