Dear Harvey,

Please can you respond to the following question about your request:

1. Regarding your first question - what aspect of material information would you like to know about. It would be most helpful to understand if it is about a course change, then which course? If it’s about a Covid-related change that had to occur or a fee change then that would have had different approach in how it would have been decided upon and operationalised.

Kind regards,
