Dear Mr Simmons,
Your request was received on 22 March 2018 and I am dealing with it under the terms of the Freedom
of Information Act 2000 (‘the Act’).
I would like to ask for the number of applicants and offer-holders for PhD in Law who have not
previously studied for a master’s degree (i.e. those applying in the last year of their
undergraduate institution straight to PhD in Law at Cambridge) in the 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017
and 2018 admissions cycles.
The requested information is attached. Please note that the data are based on self-reported information
about previous study. The attached document should not be copied, reproduced or used except in
accordance with the law of copyright.
If you are unhappy with the service you have received in relation to your request and wish to make a
complaint or request an internal review of this decision, you should write to Dr Kirsty Allen, Head of the
Registrary’s Office, quoting the reference above, at The Old Schools, Trinity Lane, Cambridge, CB2
1TN or send an email marked for her attention to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The University would normally
expect to receive your request for an internal review within 40 working days of the date of this letter and
reserves the right not to review a decision where there has been undue delay in raising a complaint. If
you are not content with the outcome of your review, you may apply directly to the Information
Commissioner for a decision. Generally, the Information Commissioner cannot make a decision unless
you have exhausted the complaints procedure provided by the University. The Information
Commissioner may be contacted at: The Information Commissioner’s Office, Wycliffe House, Water
Lane, Wilmslow, Cheshire, SK9 5AF (https://ico.org.uk/)
