MEng Chemical Engineering

We're waiting for Vlad Grosu to read a recent response and update the status.

Dear University of Manchester,

I am writing to request the degree classification by nationality of students who have graduated from MEng Chemical Engineering for academic year 2014/15, 2015/16 and 2016/17.

For each of the said graduation years, please prepare a spreadsheet detailing the number of students awarded first class honors (1), second-upper class honors (2A), second-lower class honors (2B), third class honors (3) and fail/unclassified (F) and their respective nationalities.

For e.g. :

Academic year 2014/15
Nationalities of graduates / 1 / 2A / 2B / 3 / F
Country A / 0 / 1 / 0 / 0 / 0
Country B / 1 / 3 / 0 / 0 / 0
Country C / 0 / 1 / 1 / 0 / 0

Yours faithfully,

Vlad Grosu

Dear Vlad,

Thank you for your request for information received by The University of
Manchester on 27 May 2020 which was as follows:

 

I am writing to request the degree classification by nationality of
students who have graduated from MEng Chemical Engineering for academic
year 2014/15, 2015/16 and 2016/17.

 

For each of the said graduation years, please prepare a spreadsheet
detailing the number of students awarded first class honors (1),
second-upper class honors (2A), second-lower class honors (2B), third
class honors (3) and fail/unclassified (F) and their respective
nationalities.

 

For e.g. :

 

Academic year 2014/15

Nationalities of graduates / 1 / 2A / 2B / 3 / F Country A / 0 / 1 / 0 / 0
/ 0 Country B / 1 / 3 / 0 / 0 / 0 Country C / 0 / 1 / 1 / 0 / 0

 

The University has now considered your request and some data which we hope
is of use is shown below. Please note that we have represented the data in
this way, i.e. a table of the degree classifications for the course in the
years requested and a table of the nationalities of the students on the
course in the years requested, as we deem that to provide the data
overlaid together as requested would lead to students and their degree
classifications becoming identifiable due to the low numbers of many of
the nationalities on the course. It is the combination of these two
together, rather than the individual components separately, that leads us
to feel that the exemption at Section 40 (2) of the Freedom of Information
Act 2000 - third party personal data – is engaged and the representation
in this way is therefore deemed exempt from disclosure.

 

Section 40(2) of the FOIA provides an exemption where the application for
personal data is made by someone other than the data subject.  To apply
the exemption appropriately, the conditions set out in Section 40 (3) of
the FOIA should be satisfied. Section 40 (3) of FOIA states that where
disclosure of the information would contravene any one of the eight
principles in the DPA then this data is exempt.

 

Any disclosure under the Freedom of Information Act 2000 is considered a
disclosure “to the world”. The University of Manchester does not believe
that the release of the data requested will be fair or lawful under the
terms of FOIA as the students on this course would have no expectation
that their personal data, i.e. their nationality coupled with their degree
classification, would be released “to the world” for this purpose. As
such, disclosure of the information requested by you under Section 1(1) of
the FOIA would be unfair and thus in breach of Principle 1 of the DPA and
hence Section 40 (2) of the FOIA applies. This email serves to act as a
refusal notice for that representation of the data, in accordance with
Section 17 (1) of the Freedom of Information Act 2000.

 

Please find below the two tables of data referenced above.

 

1.       Numbers for each degree classification in the years requested.

 

2014/15 2015/16 2016/17
Degree Classification 1st 2:1 2:2 1st 2:1 2:2 1st 2:1 2:2
Total Each Classification 17 35 1 28 26 2 19 34 1
Grand Total 53 56 54

 

2.       Numbers for nationality of graduating students.

 

Nationality 2014/15 2015/16 2016/17
Afghanistan 1
Bahrain   1
Brunei Darussalam 1
China 4 3
Cyprus 1
Egypt 1 1
France 1
Hong Kong 1
India 3
Indonesia 1 2 2
Iran 1
Ireland 1

Malaysia 3 7 9
Norway 1
Pakistan 2 1
Philippines 1
Portugal 1
Singapore 2 1
United Kingdom 34 40 35
Vietnam   1
Zimbabwe 1
Grand Total 53 56 54

 

I trust this information is of use to you however if you feel that The
University of Manchester has refused access to information to which you
are entitled, or has not dealt with your request appropriately under the
FOIA, you have a right of appeal.

 

An appeal in the first instance should be directed to the Information
Governance Office at [1][email address]. You should include: 

·         details of your initial request

·         any other relevant information

 

You must make this appeal within 40 working days from receipt of your
response. We will not accept appeals received after this date, as per the
Freedom of Information Code of Practice, Section 5.3.

 

The University will deal with your appeal within a reasonable time, and
will inform you of the projected time scale on receipt of your complaint.
You are also welcome to contact the Information Governance Office with
informal questions about the handling of your request. 

 

After The University’s internal appeals procedure has been exhausted, you
have a further right of appeal to the Information Commissioner’s
Office. Details of this procedure can be found at [2]www.ico.org.uk.

 

Kind regards

 

Sharon
