Dear Mr Kay,
Your request was received on 6 February 2019 and I am dealing with it under the terms of the Freedom
of Information Act 2000 (‘the Act’). You asked:
Can you please give the number of applications and number of offers for every postgraduate
course at Cambridge for 2015-2016, 2016-2017, 2017-2018, 2018-2019.
This information is published for 2015-16 to 2017-18 at https://www.graduate.study.cam.ac.uk/admissions-statistics.
The comparable information for 2018-19 is
not held as the cycle is ongoing.
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 contact us quoting the reference
number above. 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/)
