Dear April

 

Thank you for your Freedom of Information request of 10^th June 2022 and
clarifications of 13^th & 15^th June 2022. 

 

We have completed the compilation of information in response to your
request for information about admission statistics for UCL’s undergraduate
degrees.

 

You clarified that:

 

• You would like the following admissions data for the UCAS cycle 2022 –
for entry in 2022 or deferred entry in 2023:

 

1.            How many people submitted applications and how many received
offers

2.            How many applications are received and how many offers are
sent for each course

 

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

 

As you will see within the attached spreadsheet, where the number of
applications and offers is five or fewer, this information has been
withheld because, with such low numbers, even providing this information
on an anonymised basis, there is a risk that 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 2000 (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:

 

Vice-President (Operations)

University College London

Gower Street

London

WC1E 6BT

 

Please note, complaints and requests for internal review received more
than two months after the initial decision will not be handled.

 

If you are not content with the outcome of the internal review, you may
apply directly to the Information Commissioner at the address given below.
You should do this within two months of our final decision.

 

If you have any queries or concerns, please contact me using the details
provided in this letter and including the request reference number.

Dear Finance.FOI Requests,

Thank you for replying to me in your busy schedule. I have a question about this form. Why do some programs only have application data but no offer data, such as BA Dutch.

Yours sincerely,

april tong

Finance.FOI Requests, University College London

Dear April

Where there are no offers for a programme, it does not appear in the offer sheet. So, the BA Dutch has fewer than or equal to 5 applicants, and there were no offers made.

Please do let me know if you need further assistance.

Kind regards
Janine
