I would like to request the admissions "course manual" for BA Human Sciences. The course
manual I am requesting is referred to in the Undergraduate Admssions Handbook disclosed
Page 26 of the document states:
This page includes links to general ADSS manuals, individual course manuals and timelines
and information on uploading documents through ADSS webview.
The 2019 entry General manuals are linked below. Course manuals are for 2018 entry:
updated versions for 2019 will be available mid-October. Please contact ADSS Support or
the departmental AdmissionsCoordinator if you have any questions."
The manual is also mentioned on page 19:
"the cGCSE score is used differently across courses. Users should see the relevant course
manual or consult the Admissions Coordinator for advice."
Note that the course manuals in question are inaccessible from the earlier disclosed
document. Please provide the most recent BA Human Sciences "course manual" in pdf
format. It is also my understanding that these "course manuals" are for admissions
purposes and are seperate from the undergraduate course handbooks found on the
department's website. Please confirm that this is the case.
Dear Mr Pitts,
I write in reply to your email of 24 August requesting the above information.
The information you have requested is attached. As there is no document called a “course manual” for Human
Sciences, we have provided you with the internal admissions guide, which we believe is the document you are
seeking. Please note that we have redacted the administrators’ personal data.
