Dear G Desmond

 

FREEDOM OF INFORMATION REQUEST FOI-198 (2014)

 

I refer to your email of 26 August 2014 requesting information on student
debt at the University of Aberdeen.

 

I apologise on behalf of the University for the lateness of this reply. 
Your request has now been considered under the Freedom of Information
(Scotland) Act 2002, hereinafter referred to as “the Act”.

 

Please note that the University is currently implementing  a new 
Financial System and  the data available  on student debt reflects the
position as of 30 July 2014, although some debts may have been settled
since then. 

 

Even when in place however the view which Registry has only reveals the
amount due on the current date, and cannot provide retrospective data.  It
also does not distinguish between tuition fees and any other debt.

 

I have provided responses where the information is available as of 30 July
2014.

 

·         The total summary figure for the number of students  with debt,
recorded in our financial system  = 869.  This figure cannot be broken
down further  into UG/PGT/PGR categories

 

·         From Registry data,  403 students were due and permitted to
re-register for 2014/15 had overdue debts. These have been broken down as
follows;  UG= 281;  PGT (inc PGDE) = 58; PGR (inc research training) = 64

 

·         In addition, 37 students  were due and barred from
re-registering for 2014/15 because of historic debt over £500 . These have
been broken down as follows; UG = 11;  PGT (inc PGDE) = 11;  PGR = 15

 

·         13 students (with an expected end date in the current academic
year) who applied to receive an award but were barred from graduation or
receiving an award due to debt or non-payment of graduation fees. These
have been broken down as follows; UG = 4;  PGT (inc PGDE) = 9;  PGR = 0
(nil)

 

 

Should you be dissatisfied with the University's response under the Act,
you have the right to ask the University formally to review its decision. 
If you ask us to do this such a review will normally be undertaken by a
senior member of staff with no prior involvement in the original
decision.  The University may, however, refer the matter to a lay member
of the University Court to undertake the review where this is deemed
appropriate.  Any request for review must be in writing or another form
capable of preservation, be received not later than 60 working days
following the date of your original request, as adjusted by the date of
this reply, and state the matter which gives rise to your
dissatisfaction.  It should be addressed to Mr B Purdon, Clerk to the
University Court, University Office, King's College, ABERDEEN AB24 3FX.

 

Yours sincerely,
