Dear Mr Chen

Thank you for your email of 20 March 2020 requesting information about
Data Science MSc admissions data.

 

As explained in our automatic reply mesage, the University’s working
arrangements are affected by the Coronavirus outbreak. Unfortunately, I am
currently unable to tell you exactly when you will receive a response to
your request. However, I can confirm that it is actively being progressed.
While we are making all efforts to respond to your request promptly, the
Coronavirus (Scotland) Act 2020, which came into force on 7 April, has
temporarily extended the maximum timescales for responding to requests for
information and internal reviews received under the Freedom of Information
(Scotland) Act 2002 from 20 to 60 working days. Further information about
this change is published on the [1]Scottish Information Commissioner’s

If you are unhappy with the way the University has handled your request,
you do have the right to ask the University to conduct an internal review
of the reasons for the delay. The [2]Scottish Information Commissioner’s
guidance about this during the Covid-19 pandemic is available on their
website. If you wish to submit a review request you should write to the
Records Management Section (using this email address), describing the
original request, explaining your grounds for dissatisfaction, and
including an address for correspondence. When the review process is
complete, if you are still dissatisfied, you may use the Scottish
Information Commissioner’s guidance on making an appeal to make an appeal
to the Commissioner.  The [3]University of Edinburgh's request privacy
