Dear University of St Andrews,

under the Freedom of Information act, I would like to know for Chemistry with Medicinal Chemistry BSc (Hons) for the 2020/21, 2019/20 and 2018/19 admission cycles:

- the number of applications,
- the number of offers made,
- the number of acceptances,
- the number of enrolments.

Yours faithfully,
Shannon

Dear Shannon,

 

Many thanks for your enquiry below dated 27 October 2020. Before I can
proceed to process your request however under the Freedom of Information
(Scotland) Act 2002 (FOISA), I would be grateful if you could confirm your
surname please?

 

I am asking for this point of clarification as part of the University’s
duty under Section 15 of the FOISA is to provide advice and assistance to
enquirers. Details of your name is important for two reasons:

 

o For a request to be valid under section 8(1)(b) of the FOISA the name
of the applicant needs to be stated in the enquiry – a request with
only the first name of an applicant in the body of an email does not
meet this requirement.
o To safeguard your own rights. In the event that the University
answered your enquiry in such a way that you were unhappy with the
response given, after an internal review, your next course of action
would be to appeal to the Scottish Information Commissioner. The
Commissioner however, is unable to deal with any applications where it
is found that the original enquiry was invalid as in this case.

 

Your request is considered to be invalid at present and will therefore be
held pending until I hear from you further.

 

Yours sincerely,

 

 

 

June
