Dear Cardiff University,

I'm writing to you under the Freedom of Information Act (2000) to ask that you please disclose to me how many applicants your institution had for English literature, history, classics and philosphy since 2009. The reason I'd like this date range is that it covers each incremental hike in tuition fee caps from 2010, adjustments in the 2015 budget, and the tuition fee increase of 2016.

I'd also like to know the same information for Engineering, Economics & Finance, Business Management, Computer Science.

I'd also like to know about funding levels for the above subjects over this time frame in a very basic year-on-year format.

Yours faithfully,

Iain Overton
