Gwrthodwyd y cais gan Cardiff University.

Dear Cardiff University,

I am investigating ethnicity at Russell Group institutions, and would like to make a request for the following information under the FOI act:

1) The number and percentage of students admitted each academic year (undergraduate and postgraduate) broken down by ethnicity, e.g. White British: 69.9%, Indian, 4.5% etc., for the years 2014-2017. I am aware that the categories of ethnicity will depend on your own institution, and how you collect data.
2) The percentage of successful applicants admitted each academic year (undergraduate and postgraduate) broken down by ethnicity, e.g. White British: 20.1% applicants successful, Indian, 30.1% applicants successful etc., for the years 2014-2017. I am aware that the categories of ethnicity will depend on your own institution, and how you collect data.
3) The number and percentage of students admitted for the academic year 2017/18 (undergraduate and postgraduate), for each individual course, broken down by ethnicity, e.g. Biology BSc: White British: 69.9% etc. I am aware that the categories of ethnicity will depend on your own institution, and how you collect data.

I believe that these data would be best represented as a spreadsheet.

Please let me know if you have any questions.

Yours faithfully,

Thomas Ericson

Dear Thomas

 

I am writing in response to your Freedom of Information request dated 6
November 2017 in which you requested information regarding ethnicity
statistics.

 

For ease of reference, I have reproduced your questions below and set out
our corresponding response.

 

1)     The number and percentage of students admitted each academic year
(undergraduate and postgraduate) broken down by ethnicity, e.g. White
British: 69.9%, Indian, 4.5% etc., for the years 2014-2017. I am aware
that the categories of ethnicity will depend on your own institution, and
how you collect data.

 

2)     The percentage of successful applicants admitted each academic year
(undergraduate and postgraduate) broken down by ethnicity, e.g. White
British: 20.1% applicants successful, Indian, 30.1% applicants successful
etc., for the years 2014-2017. I am aware that the categories of ethnicity
will depend on your own institution, and how you collect data.

 

3)     The number and percentage of students admitted for the academic
year 2017/18 (undergraduate and postgraduate), for each individual course,
broken down by ethnicity, e.g. Biology BSc: White British: 69.9% etc. I am
aware that the categories of ethnicity will depend on your own
institution, and how you collect data.

 

The University holds the information that you have requested. However the
information for the 2014/15 and 2015/16 academic years is already in the
public domain and is available from HESA, the official agency for the
collection, analysis and dissemination of quantitative information about
higher education in the UK, at [1]https://www.hesa.ac.uk/. Please note
that while high level statistics are readily available from the HESA
website, in order to obtain data at institution level, it might be
necessary to submit a custom data request directly to HESA. Information
about this service including how to make a request is available at
[2]https://www.hesa.ac.uk/services/custom/d.... Accordingly this
information is reasonably accessible to you by other means and is exempt
from disclosure under section 21 of the Freedom of Information Act 2000.

 

Information for the 2016/17 and 2017/18 academic years relating to
students is due to be published by HESA in January 2018 / 2019
respectively and will be available to the public via the HESA website at:
[3]https://www.hesa.ac.uk/  As this information is intended for future
publication it is exempt from disclosure by virtue of Section 22 of the
Freedom of Information Act 2000 subject to a public interest test.

 

I trust this information satisfies your enquiry.  The University has a
Freedom of Information Complaints Procedure should you feel dissatisfied
with this response or the way in which your request was handled.
Complaints must be made in writing and must set out why you believe the
University has not met its obligations under the Freedom of Information
Act.  You may email your complaint to [4][email address] where
it will be forwarded to the Director of Strategic Planning and Governance
who will be responsible for overseeing the review.

 

If you remain dissatisfied following the outcome of your complaint, you
have the right to apply directly to the Information Commissioner for
consideration.  The Information Commissioner can be contacted at the
following address: Information Commissioner's Office, Wycliffe House,
Water Lane, Wilmslow, Cheshire, SK9 5AF.

 

I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your interest in
Cardiff University. If you require further assistance please feel free to
contact me.

 

Yours sincerely
