Roedd y cais yn llwyddiannus.

Dear University of Edinburgh,

I am writing to you to request disclosure of the proportion of students physically studying at your UK campus out of your overall 2020 enrolment.

Specifically, could you please provide:
- Your overall student enrolment at your UK campus (to the nearest one hundred) for your 2020 intake;
- The number of these that have opted to study remotely (to the nearest one hundred) for your 2020 intake;

Overall student recruitment information should now be available from your central admissions team. Estimates of students studying remotely should now be available based on those who have physically registered as being on campus vs those who have informed you that they will be studying remotely.

Yours faithfully,

Brian Jones

Records Management, University of Edinburgh
