Dear Lisa

I am writing to ask for clarification on your request.

Where you refer to 'quota' do you mean the number of places we have available on the A206 course - relating to each of your questioning?

Please can you confirm if this is the case - if it is not then please can you confirm exactly what you mean by the word quota?

Until you provide this clarification we will be unable to provide a response to your request.

Best wishes
Holly

Dear Holly Haslam,

I regret to receive your response of "Data not held. The University of Manchester do not run the A200 course." on 5 September 2018.

You will appreciate that I have sent a follow-up email on 6 August 2018, immediately after my initial request email, stating the following (inter alia): "To clarify, I am seeking information regarding programme A206. Sorry for the typographical error in the previous message."

In the 6 August 2018 follow-up email, I also wrote:
"On top of the above 3 questions, I also seek the following information:
A. For the latest three (3) admission cycles: the quota for all applicants regardless of fee status
B. For the upcoming admission cycle (for admission in September 2019), the quota for all applicants regardless of fee status"

You wrote in reply on 7 August 2018, referring to the "A206 course", so you have undoubtedly received my clarification email and understood that my request referred to the "A206 course".

In light of the above, I believe a valid request had been lodged on 6 August 2018, in relation to your A206 dentistry course. Please kindly supply the information requested in relation to the A206 as soon as possible. I eagerly await your reply.

Yours sincerely,

Lisa Yamamoto

Dear Lisa,

 

I write further to your email dated 09/09/2018 in which you expressed
dissatisfaction at The University of Manchester’s response to your Freedom
of Information request our reference 018-326. In our response we had
advised you that no information was held as the University does not run
the A200 course. You quite rightly pointed out that immediately after your
initial request email, you sent a further email to clarify that you were
seeking information regarding the A206 programme.

 

Please accept my apologies for the mistake in our original response. We
have now been provided with the data in relation to the A206 course which
you will find below.

 

1.            For the latest three (3) admission cycles: quota for
international (non-EU) applicants

2.            For the latest three (3) admission cycles: total number of
international (non-EU) applicants; number of international (non-EU)
applicants offered an interview; number of international (non-EU)
applicants offered a place; number of international (non-EU) applicants
enrolled

3.            For the upcoming admission cycle (for admission in September
2019), the quota for international (non-EU) applicants

 

On top of the above 3 questions, I also seek the following information:

A. For the latest three (3) admission cycles: the quota for all applicants
regardless of fee status B. For the upcoming admission cycle (for
admission in September 2019), the quota for all applicants regardless of
fee status

 

In relation to quota, you confirmed that you sought the number of places
we have available.

 

I can advise that the numbers of places available on our medical and
dental programmes is set by government. The answers to questions 1, 3 and
your additional question are therefore exempt from disclosure by virtue of
the listed exemption at Section 21 – Information Readily Accessible by
Other Means – as these can be found on the Office for Students
([1]https://www.officeforstudents.org.uk/adv...)
and its predecessor HEFCE
([2]http://www.hefce.ac.uk/lt/healthcare/int...) websites.

 

In terms of our intake numbers, please see below:

 

  2015-16 2016-17 2017-18
Applications 110 92 80
Interviews 17 17 15
Offers 14 16 10
Enrolled 8 10 6

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I trust this information is of use to you. The University’s internal
appeals procedure has now been exhausted, however if you are still not
happy you have a further right of appeal to the Information Commissioner’s
Office. Details of this procedure can be found at [3]www.ico.org.uk.

 

Kind regards
