Dear Tracey Crombie,

Thanks for your reply. I might not clarify it clearly in my previous request. According to my request 5 for "Number of Chinese applications and offers made (Business Programs, Mathematics Programmes, separately)" and"Number of international applications and offers made (Business Programs, Mathematics Programs, separately) , I would like you to provide the data in terms of a breakdown of all Business Programs and Mathematics Programmes. If possible, could you please provide this information for 2016-2017, 2017-2018, 2018-2019?

Yours sincerely,

KAI CHEN

Dear Kai

I attached a further copy of the spreadsheet for your information. This does cover the points you raise below and explains that the information does not go back to 2016/17 as the systems were changed and we only have information from 2017/8 onwards (see highlighted sections on spreadsheet). If you have any further queries please do not hesitate to contact me.

Regards
Tracey

Dear Tracey,

From the spreadsheet, I could only see the total number of Business and Math programmes applications or offers. However, I would like to request the data for each programme related to Business and Math, such as Msc Marketing. Does this make sense to you?

Yours sincerely,
KAI CHEN

Tracey Crombie,

Have you looked at the second page of the spreadsheet, this list all programmes related to Business and Maths?

Dear Tracey Crombie,

Thanks for your reply. I could see a list of all the programmes including Business and Mathematics.

However, according to my request 5 for "Number of Chinese applications and offers made (Business Programs, Mathematics Programmes, separately)" and"Number of international applications and offers made (Business Programs, Mathematics Programs, separately) , I would like you to provide the data in terms of a breakdown of all Business Programs and Mathematics Programmes. For example, the number of applications and offers made for Msc Marketing or Accounting is XXX.

Simply, I am looking for the statistics for each specific Business or Mathematics programme. I am sorry that I might confuse you in previous email.

Yours sincerely,

KAI CHEN
