Dear University of Aberdeen,

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,

Russ Hunter

Foi, University of Aberdeen

Hi,

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,
