Dear Dan, 
Thank you for your email of 15th January 2019 requesting information under the Freedom of 
Information Act 2000.  Please see the responses to each of your questions below: 
 
1.  Total number of applications received by the UCAS Deadline of 15th January 2019 for 
the normal LLB Law with Business for the 2018/19 application cycle (not including 
deferred entry applications)  

2.  Total number of applications received by the UCAS Deadline of 15th January 2019 for 
the LLB Law with Business programme including industrial placement and 
professional placement options for the 2018/19 application cycle (not including 
deferred entry applications). 

3.  The total number of places available for the normal LLB Law with Business for 2019 
entry i.e. how many people are able to study it per year. 
4.  I would also like to know out of the total applications for 2019 start for the normal LLB 
Law with Business how many offers given were unconditional and how many offers 
were conditional. 

 
The information you have requested is considered to be commercially sensitive as specified in section 
43 of the Freedom of Information Act. As such this information will not be released. 
Section 43 is a qualified exemption and so a public interest test has been carried out. In favour of 
disclosure we considered the principles of both transparency and accountability in the way a public 
authority performs its functions. Opposing this we considered the impact disclosure of this information 
could have on the University’s market position, particularly as it may be used for direct comparison with 
the sector more broadly. 
The University feels that disclosure of information is likely to impact the decisions of potential applicants 
and therefore The University’s position in the market. It is the view of the University that this outweighs 
the factors in favour of releasing the information at this time. The admissions cycle runs until September 
2019 at which point the impact of disclosure would be significantly reduced. 
 
This response has been prepared in accordance with a request received pursuant to the Freedom of 
Information Act 2000. The supply of documents under FOI does not give the person who receives the 
information an automatic right to re-use the documents without obtaining the consent of the copyright 
holder. If you are dissatisfied with the handling of your request, you have the right to ask for an 
internal review. You must submit this to the Information Governance Office in writing within 40 days of 
receipt of this notification. Please quote the reference number above. 

 
 



 
If you are not content with the outcome of the internal review, you have the right to apply directly to 
the Information Commissioner for a decision. The Information Commissioner can be contacted at: 
Information Commissioner’s Office, Wycliffe House, Water Lane, Wilmslow, Cheshire SK9 5AF.
