Details of 80 credit modules on undergraduate higher education courses

Roedd y cais yn llwyddiannus.

Dear Edinburgh Napier University,

Please could you provide me with a list of all your undergraduate higher education courses which contain a single 80 SCQF credit module.
For each 80-credit module you deliver, please give the SCQF level and provide me with the module descriptor or curriculum document which lists how the notional learning hours are allocated to the module. Please could you give me the mode of delivery and also the learning outcomes, aims, objectives and modes of assessment for that module. If there are any essays/dissertations etc. please give the word count for those.

Yours faithfully,

F Smith

Dear F Smith,

 

To allow me to consider your request valid under the Freedom of
Information (Scotland) Act 2002 you must provide your full name.

 

I have provided a link to the relevant page on the Scottish Information
Commissioners website, and have copied the relevant text below. 

[1]http://www.itspublicknowledge.info/FAQ/G...

 

Do I have to provide my real name and my full address when I ask for
information?

The FOI Act says that a request must include the name of the applicant and
an address for correspondence. In terms of your address, either your full
postal address or your email address will be fine. 

You will need to provide your full real name.   If you don't use your real
name the authority won't have to provide the information, and you won't be
able to appeal to the Commissioner.  At the very least, your request
should include your initial and your surname.

If you send your request by email, remember to put your name in the text
of the email.  Even if your name appears in your email address (e.g.
[email address]) you must add your name to the text of your
request, so that it is clear who the email is from

 

Please either provide your full name, or resubmit your request with your
full name within the body of the email.

 

If I can be of any further assistance in the meantime, please do not
hesitate to get in touch.

 

Kind Regards

Elaine

Dear Edinburgh Napier University,

Please pass this on to the person who conducts Freedom of Information reviews.

I am writing to request an internal review of Edinburgh Napier University's handling of my FOI request 'Details of 80 credit modules on undergraduate higher education courses'.

You have requested I provide my full name.

As noted in your own response the SIC guidance states "At the very least, your request should include your initial and your surname".

Having made an enquiry to the Scottish Information Commissioner they advised me that "as long as you have provided your initial and surname that should be sufficient to be a valid request to a public authority. You should request the public authority conduct a review of the response as you are dissatisfied with their interpretation of the guidance "

They also suggested I attach this link to the FAQ on the Commissioner's website to support my request for reconsideration and that if you still refuse to accept my request as valid I can submit an application to the Commissioner who can then investigate and issue a decision.
