Dear Ms Wang,

 

Thank you for your recent FOI request. Please find below the College's
response to your questions.

 

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

 

Under Section 21 of the Freedom of Information Act, the College is exempt
from providing information if it is reasonably accessible to the applicant
by other means. A full list of postgraduate taught courses can be found
here: [1]https://www.imperial.ac.uk/study/pg/cour....

 

2. Number of applicants

4. Number of offers

5. Number of intake

 

Please see table 1 in the attached spreadsheet. Please see the notes in
the spreadsheet for important information about the data provided.

 

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."

 

3. Number of interviews (if applicable)

 

The College does not hold this 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.

 

6. Number of North American applicants and offers (Business Programs only)

7. Number of Asian applicants and offers (Business Programs only)

 

Please see tables 2 and 3 in the attached spreadsheet.

 

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."

 

I am obliged, under the Freedom of Information Act, to inform you of our
complaints procedures in case you are unhappy about the way in which your
request has been dealt with. If you wish to complain about this response,
you should contact the College Secretary at the address below.

Dear Ms Wang,

 

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.

 

For the "number of interviews", could you please provide those for
business programs.

 

Please see the attached spreadsheet. N/A indicates the programmes that do
not conduct interviews in the application process.

 

Please note that no interviews were held for Business [LISS DTP 1+3] (MRes
1YFT) as none of the applicants met the funding eligibility criteria. The
applicants were instead switched to Business (MRes 1YFT).
