Dear Austin


We have completed the compilation of information in response to your
request for the following information about UCL’s postgraduate programme:


·         A list of all postgraduate programmes for 2020/21; and

·         The number of applicants and offers made for each postgraduate
programme for 2020/21 admission.


We can confirm that we do hold information of the description specified in
your request and some of this information is provided attached.  The data
is accurate up until 13 February 2020.


As you can see, exact counts totalling five or less have been withheld
because these are personal data of third parties or, if linked with other
personal identifiers in the public domain, would be likely to become
personal data.  This information has been withheld under section 40(2) of
the FOIA by virtue of s40 (3)(a)(i).


Section 40(2) of the FOIA allows a public authority to withhold
information under the FOIA where (i) the requested information is personal
data relating to someone other than the requester and (ii) its disclosure
would breach any of the data protection principles.  In this case we
believe that the requested information could relate to and identify
individuals and would be considered as their personal data.  The
disclosure of this personal data would not be in the reasonable
expectations of the individuals concerned and it would be unfair to do so;
this therefore breaches the first data protection principle.


It is for these reasons that this information is exempt under section
40(2) of the Act.


As the section 20(2) exemption is an absolute one, there is no need to
conduct a public interest test.


You are free to use any information supplied for your own use, including
for non-commercial research purposes. The information may also be used for
the purposes of news reporting. However, any other type of re-use, for
example by publishing or issuing copies to the public, will require the
permission of the copyright owner.


If you are unhappy with our response to your request and wish to make a
complaint or request a review of our decision, please email
[1][email address]. Emails should include the words ‘Internal
Review’ in the subject and be marked For the Attention of the Chief
Operating Officer, alternatively you should write to:


Chief Operating Officer

University College London

Gower Street




If you are not content with the outcome of the internal review, you may
apply directly to the Information Commissioner at the address given below.
You should do this within two months of our final decision. (Please note,
complaints and requests for internal review received more than two months
after the initial decision will not be handled.)


If you have any queries or concerns, please contact me using the details
provided in this email and including the request reference number.
