Dear Mr. Dhaif,


Thank you for your email of 26^th July.


I am afraid that we are unable to provide the information you have
requested. This is because you have requested a great deal of detail by
each individual applicant, the combination of which we believe it could
mean that you, or someone else, may be able to identify individuals. As
such, we believe this information is exempt under s.40(2) of the Freedom
of Information Act 2000 by virtue of s.40(3A)(a). We do not have the
consent of the individuals concerned and they would not reasonably expect
this information to be disclosed in to the public domain. It could also
cause distress. Therefore, it would not be fair and would breach the first
data protection principle. The Information Commissioner states, “If the
disclosure would not be fair, the information must not be disclosed”(1).
This is an absolute exemption.


We publish admissions statistics and entry requirements on our website,
please see
Each year’s cohort varies. You may also find this recent response, among
others, useful


If you are dissatisfied with this response, you may ask QMUL to conduct a
review of this decision.  To do this, please contact the College in
writing (including by fax, letter or email), describe the original
request, explain your grounds for dissatisfaction, and include an address
for correspondence.  You have 40 working days from receipt of this
communication to submit a review request.  When the review process has
been completed, if you are still dissatisfied, you may ask the Information
Commissioner to intervene. Please see [3] for details.

Yours sincerely


Paul Smallcombe

Records & Information Compliance Manager
