In relation to my earlier request sent yesterday, the sentence: "I am asking about students who declare (or who have been found to have) a criminal conviction, through their application to the University." should have read instead: " I am asking about students who declare (or who have been found to have) a criminal conviction, through their application/enrollment to the University. I would be grateful if you could please confirm receipt of this clarification. My apologies for any confusion caused.
Thank you for your email. Please note, your original request was invalid. An information request must contain the name of the person making the request. Unfortunately, a request which only includes a first name will not be valid. The University can progress your request if you resend with surname/family name and/or an initial/title included.

I hope whoever is reading this is keeping well.
This is a request for information under the FOI Act.
Please can you answer the following questions for the academic years of: 2018/9, 2019/20, 2020/21:
1) Over this time period, how many people (undergraduate students and postgraduate students) applied to enroll to an undergraduate course at your university who was found (either by self-declaration or when prompted to disclose any criminal convictions) to have had a conviction for any sort of religious or racial hate crime incident or abuse. Can you provide the information in terms of individuals applying to enrol at your university to start at the beginning of these academic years. i.e. this includes those applying in, say December 2017, for enrollment in 2018/9. I want to be clear that I am asking about students who declare (or who have been found to have) a criminal conviction, through their application/enrollment to the University.
I am defining 'religious hate crime or abuse' as any crime relating to verbal and physical abuse, bullying, threatening behaviour, online abuse or damage to property on the grounds of race or religion.
When answering Q1, please can you state the types of convictions disclosed (and how many times this type of conviction was disclosed).
2) How many of the people identified in Q1 were subsequently allocated to live in (university maintained/owned) residential settings (either in apartments or shared accommodation blocks on campus, for example) with students who identified as being from a 'BAME' background or a 'religious' background?
When answering Q2, please can you specify the type of residential setting, and whether the student who was allocated a house with the student convicted of a hate/religious crime identified as 'black' or 'Asian' or another ethnic minority, and the type of religion (i.e. 'christian' or 'Muslim') they identified as.
