Finance.FOI Requests, University College London

Dear Mohammed

 

Thank you for your Freedom of Information request of 19^th May 2023.

 

We have completed the compilation of information in response to your
request for information about the number of applicants, the number of
offers, the number of acceptances made, and the number of enrolments for
students who re-took their A-Levels (whereby they sat a 2 year A-Level
course and reapplied in the next UCAS cycle, for the following September
intake, therefore doing their A-Levels over 3 years) for the 2018/19,
2019/20, 2020/21 and 2021/22 academic cycles respectively, for UK students
in the following courses:

 

• Civil Engineering BEng (H200)
• Civil Engineering Meng (H202)

 

We can confirm that we do hold information of the description specified in
your request and this information is provided below.

 

Our Response:

 

  2018-19 2019-20 2020-21 2021-22
Applications ≤5 11 ≤5 ≤5
Offers ≤5 8 ≤5 ≤5
Acceptances ≤5 6 ≤5 ≤5
Enrolments 0  ≤5 ≤5 ≤5

 

As you will see, where the number of applications, offers, acceptances and
enrolments is five or fewer, the information has been withheld
(represented as ≤5).  This information has been withheld because, with
such low numbers, even providing the information on an anonymised basis,
there is a risk the individuals may be identifiable which means that these
are personal data of third parties, or if linked with other personal
identifiers in the public domain, would be likely to become personal
data.  This information has been withheld under Section 40(2) of the
Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) by virtue of Section 40(3A)(i).

 

Section 40(2) of the FOIA allows a public authority to withhold
information under the FOIA where (i) the requested information is personal
data relating to someone other than the requester, and (ii) its disclosure
would breach any of the Data Protection principles.  In this case, we
believe that the requested information could relate to and identify
individuals and therefore would be personal data.  The disclosure of these
personal data would not be within the reasonable expectations of the
individuals concerned and it would be unfair to do so; this therefore
breaches the first Data Protection principle.

 

As the Section 40(2) exemption is an absolute one, there is no need to
conduct a public interest test.

 

 

You are free to use any information supplied for your own use, including
for non-commercial research purposes. The information may also be used for
the purposes of news reporting. However, any other type of re-use, for
example by publishing or issuing copies to the public, will require the
permission of the copyright owner.

 

If you are unhappy with our response to your request and wish to make a
complaint or request a review of our decision, please email
[1][email address]. Emails should include the words ‘Internal
Review’ in the subject and be marked For the Attention of the
Vice-President (Operations), alternatively you should write to:
