Dear Meichen Liu

 

Thank you for your Freedom of Information request of 24^th September 2022.

 

We have completed the compilation of information in response to your
request for the following information about admission statistics for UCL’s
postgraduate programmes for the 202/21, 2021/22 and 2022/21 admissions
cycles:

 

 1. Number of applicants and offers made (all postgraduate programmes)
 2. Number of Chinese* applications and offers made (all postgraduate
programmes)

 

*Chinese means applicants whose nationality is China

 

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
applicants and offers is five or fewer, the information has been withheld
(represented as ˜5).  This information has been withheld because with such
low numbers, even providing this 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 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:

apply directly to the Information Commissioner at the address given below.
You should do this within two months of our final decision.
