Dear Swansea University,

Under the Freedom of Information Act 2000, I’d like to make a request regarding the careers support services available at your university.

If possible, I’d like to receive data specific to the 2018/2019 academic year.

Specifically, I’d like to request data on the student careers services spend. (Excluding operational costs.)

This could fall under career support or careers programmes.

If this includes a combined group of departments, could you please specify each department and their individual spend?

If I could please receive the data in a spreadsheet format, that would be fantastic. Feel free to get in touch if you require any clarification from myself!

Yours faithfully,

Jamie Dixon

Hi Lisa,

Apologies for the inconvenience, but would it be possible to disregard the 'operational costs' aspect of my previous request, and instead just receive the overall careers spend for the university?

Yours sincerely,

Jamie Dixon

Dear Jamie

 

I write in relation to your request 162/19-20, requesting information on
career services spend.

 

Thanks for the email sent this morning regarding the operational costs,
however it is not possible to progress your request at this time, as
clarification is needed from you to enable us to locate the information
you have asked for.

 

Can you please clarify the distinction between ‘career support or career
programmes’?

 

Can you also confirm whether the request is in relation to staff or
students?

 

In line with the Freedom of Information Act 2000 Section 10(6), the 20
working day timescale will start the day after the University receives the
necessary clarification. If we do not receive clarification from you then
your request will be closed 20 working days from the date of this email.

 

Kind Regards

 

Lisa Hughes
