Dear London School of Economics,

I would like to request the application statistics for the LLB / Bachelor of Law for 2019/20. Specifically, could you please provide data on the total number of applications, the number of applicants who have received an offer (can be both conditional and unconditional) for this year, and the number of applicants who were UK/home versus international students.

Yours faithfully,

Johnathan Bogart

GLPD.Info.Rights, London School of Economics

Dear Johnathan,

Please Note:

Each applicant to LSE is considered on his/her merit and in competition
with the rest of the applicant cohort in a given admissions cycle. Each
application is viewed holistically; assessing the merit, potential,
motivation, skills and qualities of applicants by considering all the
information presented on the application form. This includes, but is not
limited to, academic achievements and qualifications. The personal
statement, academic reference and additional social and educational
contextual data also form an important part of the selection process. For
more information on exactly what contextual information is used in the
admissions decision making process please refer to the [1]Undergraduate
Admissions Policy.

If you think that the information provided does not meet your request,
contact Rachael Maguire on 020 7849 4622 or write to Louise Nadal, School
Secretary, London School of Economics and Political Science, Houghton
Street, London, WC2A 2AE. We will then review the response to your request
and get back to you within 20 working days. You can also contact the
Information Commissioner's Office [2]http://www.ico.gov.uk/, though they
expect the internal review to be carried out before receiving a complaint
directly.

 

The provision of information by the LSE under the Freedom of Information
Act 2000 does not imply a right to copy, reproduce publish or otherwise
use such information.  Copying or reproducing such information in any way
either in whole or in part without prior written consent may be an
