Dear Mr Taylor
Request for information under the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA), 2000 – 2020/008
Your request was received on 6 January 2020 and was handled under the provisions of the
Freedom of Information Act, 2000 and is copied below for your reference.
‘I am concerned, but hopeful that Bath has been able to continue to recruit EU staff in
significant numbers. I was wondering if you would be able to tell me:
1) How many new EU academic staff the university has been able to recruit over the last year
2) How many EU academic staff have left the university over the same time period
3) The overall number of EU academic staff currently working at Bath.
Section 1(1) usually entitles you to be told whether the requested information is held and have
that information provided to you unless it is judged to be exempt from disclosure. We can confirm
the following information.
If you are dissatisfied with any aspect of how your request was handled you may ask the
University to conduct an internal review. A request for an internal review must be submitted
within 40 working days of receipt by you of this response. Requests received outside this period
will only be considered at the University's discretion and where there is a valid reason to do so.
Applications for internal review should be emailed to: The Freedom of Information Team,
email@example.com or addressed in writing to University of Bath, Claverton
Down, Bath, BA2 7AY.
If you remain dissatisfied you may appeal to the Information Commissioner’s Office at Wycliffe
House, Water Lane, Wilmslow, Cheshire SK9 5AF. Further details of this process are available
via the following link: https://ico.org.uk/make-a-complaint/official-information-concerns-
report/official-information-concern/ Please note that the Information Commissioner will only
consider appeals once the internal review process has been completed.
