Dear Mr Chen,

 

Thank you for your recent Freedom of Information request. I apologise for
the delay in responding to you.

 

Please find below the College's response to your questions.

 

Please note that in the responses to the following questions figures of
five or fewer (including zero) have been replaced with an asterisk. This
is because, due to the small numbers involved, individuals may otherwise
be identifiable from the data provided. This information is therefore
exempt from disclosure under Section 40 (2) of the Freedom of Information
Act, which states that "any information to which a request for information
relates is also exempt information if - (a) it constitutes personal data."

 

1. List of all postgraduate taught courses for 2016/2017, 2017/2018,
2018/2019

2. Number of applicants

 

See table 1 in the attached spreadsheet.

 

3. Number of interviews (if applicable)

 

The College does not hold interview data in a central log. To retrieve the
data, it would be necessary to contact all departments. The College
estimates that this would take in excess of 18 hours, exceeding the
appropriate limit. This information is therefore exempt from disclosure
under section 12(1) of the Freedom of Information Act. Section 12 states
that “Section 1 (1) does not oblige a public authority to comply with a
request for information if the authority estimates that the cost of
complying with the request would exceed the appropriate limit (under the
Freedom of Information and Data Protection (Appropriate Limit and Fees)
Regulations 2004).”  The appropriate limit is set at 18 hours.

 

4. Number of offers made

 

See table 1 in the attached spreadsheet.

 

5. Number of Chinese applications and offers made (Business Programs,
Mathematics Programs, separately)

 

See table 2 in the attached spreadsheet. Data has been provided for
Business and Mathematics programmes only.

 

6. Percentage of international applicants interviewed that were made an
offer (Business Programs , Mathematics Programs, separately)

7. Percentage of Chinese applicants interviewed and were made an offer
(Business Programs, Mathematics Programs, separately)

 

As noted in question 3 the College does not hold interview data in a
central log. To retrieve the data, it would be necessary to contact all
departments. The College estimates that this would take in excess of 18
hours, exceeding the appropriate limit. This information is therefore
exempt from disclosure under section 12(1) of the Freedom of Information
Act as stated above.

 

8. Offer holders' bachelor degree main subject area (Business Programs,
Mathematics Programs, separately)

 

See table 3 in the attached spreadsheet for the subject declared by offer
holders at the point of application. Data has been provided for Business
and Mathematics programmes only. 

 

9. Offer holders' bachelor degree average academic performance (Business
Programs, Mathematics Programs, separately)

 

10.Offer holders' minimum entry grades in terms of academic performance
(Business Programs, Mathematics Programs, separately)

 

See table 4 in the attached spreadsheet for the final achieved and
verified grades of offer holders. Data has been provided for Business and
Mathematics programmes only.

 

11. Offer holders' universities attended for bachelor degree (Business
Programs, Mathematics Programs, separately)

 

See table 5 in the attached spreadsheet for the institution declared by
offer holders at the point of application . Data has been provided for
Business and Mathematics programmes only.

 

If you are unhappy with the way that we have handled your request, you can
ask us to conduct a review. Please make your representation in writing
within 40 days of the date you received this response. If you remain
dissatisfied with how Imperial College has handled your request you may
then approach the [1]Information Commissioner’s Office.

 

Kind regards,

 

Freedom of Information Team
