Ref.:FOI/D86/M100

Dear Durham University,

I am making an enquiry into the admissions statistics for the LLB
Law course at your University. In the following context, 'Home'
refers to applicants whose fee status has been classified as either
'Home UK' or 'Home EU', and 'Overseas' to those whose fee status
has been classified as 'Overseas'.

In the admissions cycle for M100 Sept 2015 entry,

1/ What was the total number of applications received from
a. 'home' applicants?
b. 'overseas' applicants?
2/ What is the number of offers (conditional and unconditional)
made to
a. 'home' applicants?
b. 'overseas' applicants?

It will be highly appreciated if the following information is also
available. If it is unfortunately not, in order to protect the
commercial interests of your University, please attempt to respond
the two questions posted above.

3/ What was the registration target for
a. 'home' applicants?
b. 'overseas' applicants?

Please let me know if you have questions in relation to the Freedom
of Information request. This completes the request.

Yours faithfully,

Dear A. R. Lieu,

 

Thank you for your request for information from Durham University. Please
see our response below.

 

I am making an enquiry into the admissions statistics for the LLB Law
course at your University. In the following context, 'Home' refers to
applicants whose fee status has been classified as either 'Home UK' or
'Home EU', and 'Overseas' to those whose fee status has been classified as
'Overseas'.

 

In the admissions cycle for M100 Sept 2015 entry:

 

1.    What was the total number of applications received from a. 'home'
applicants? b. 'overseas' applicants?

2.    What is the number of offers (conditional and unconditional) made to
a. 'home' applicants? b. 'overseas' applicants?

 

Information not held. The 2015 admissions cycle is still active.

 

It will be highly appreciated if the following information is also
available. If it is unfortunately not, in order to protect the commercial
interests of your University, please attempt to respond the two questions
posted above.

 

3.     What was the registration target for a. 'home' applicants? b.
'overseas' applicants?

 

The University confirms that it holds target data for the 2015 admissions
cycle. However, the University declines your request for release under
section 43 (2) of the Freedom of Information Act (FoIA), 2000. Section 43
(2) of the FoIA exempts information from release where its disclosure
under the Act would, or would be likely to, prejudice substantially the
commercial interests of any person or public authority. As section 43 (2)
is a qualified exemption, the University has conducted a public interest
test and has concluded that release of this data would prejudice the
University’s commercial interests.

 

The University recognises that there can be a public interest in
understanding student enrolment patterns and trends. However, release of
the requested information would significantly weaken our current position
by allowing competitors to better understand our market share strategies
and adapt their own plans accordingly. Consequently, the University’s
position in this competitive market would be undermined as competitors
would be able to tailor their own admission’s strategies to match or
exceed our own targets.  

 

Should you wish to appeal any decision concerning the release of
information by the University please see

[1]http://www.dur.ac.uk/foi/info_requests/c... for details of our
review procedures.

 

Yours sincerely,
