Dear Finance.FOI Requests,

Sorry,
I mean applicants from Mainland China universities.
If there is no such information, could you please share me with MSc HEDS’s admission statistics of “people whose home domicile is China, excluding Hong Kong and Macao” (or nationality)?
Thank you again.

Yours sincerely,
