Thank you for your email. As you will appreciate, information requests
place additional demands on the School in terms of costs and staff time.
At present we are having to prioritise our finite resources in order to
meet the unprecedented challenges we are facing during the Coronavirus
(COVID-19) pandemic.  As such, we need to advise you that while we will
continue to process individual requests, you may experience some delay in
our response during the current pandemic.


Dear London School of Economics,

For the entry down below, I need the admission statistics only for students from Taiwan.
- offer holders for each year broken down by (1) the university they have attended for undergraduate study and (2) their major

My apologies for not clarifying the information at first. Thank you once again.

Yours faithfully,
