Dear Cardiff University,

I would like to request the following data relating to all law courses (i.e. both the single honours LLB or BA and any joint honours law courses) offered by your university.

I am requesting the data for candidates who received offers for one of the aforementioned law courses in the UCAS admissions cycle: 2018/2019, 2019/2020, 2020/2021 admissions cycles (I refer to these candidates as ‘the offerholders’).

I request the following data for each admissions cycle:

1) The number of applicants who were either planning to complete, or had completed, an Access to Higher Education diploma as their most recent qualification.

2) The number of offerholders who were either planning to complete, or had completed, an Access to Higher Education diploma as their most recent qualification.

3) The number of applicants who were either planning to complete, or had completed, A Levels as their most recent qualification.

4) The number of offerholders who were either planning to complete, or had completed, A Levels as their most recent qualification.

I look forward to hearing from you. Let me know if I can be of assistance in any way.

Yours faithfully,

Alex Smith

Dear Alex Smith

 

I am writing in response to your Freedom of Information request dated 6^th
October 2021.

 

For ease of reference, I have reproduced your questions below and set out
our corresponding response.

 

I would like to request the following data relating to all law courses
(i.e. both the single honours LLB or BA and any joint honours law courses)
offered by your university.

 

I am requesting the data for candidates who received offers for one of the
aforementioned law courses in the UCAS admissions cycle: 2018/2019,
2019/2020, 2020/2021  admissions cycles (I refer to these candidates as
‘the offerholders’).

 

I request the following data for each admissions cycle:

 

1) The number of applicants who were either planning to complete, or had
completed, an Access to Higher Education diploma as their most recent
qualification.

 

2) The number of offer holders who were either planning to complete, or
had completed, an Access to Higher Education diploma as their most recent
qualification.

 

Please see below table:

 

  Course Name Applications Offer Holders
LLB Law 195 143
LLB Law and Criminology (Integrated) 28 24
LLB Law and French (Integrated) (4 7 <5
2018 years)
LLB Law and Politics (Integrated) 25 22
LLB Law and Sociology (Integrated) 5 <5
LLB Law and Welsh (Integrated) <5 <5

LLB Law and Sociology (Integrated) <5 <5

 

 

Where there are less than 5 applicants or offer holders for a course, the
number has  been represented as <5. Due to the small numbers involved, to
provide an exact figure would substantially increase the risk of persons
being identified,

 

The information is exempt by virtue of Section 40(2) of the Freedom of
Information Act entitled Personal Information.  As this information would
constitute the individual's personal data as defined under Article 4 of
the UK GDPR, to release the information would breach the data protection
principle concerning fairness.

 

 

3) The number of applicants who were either planning to complete, or had
completed, A Levels as their most recent qualification.

 

4) The number of offer holders who were either planning to complete, or
had completed, A Levels as their most recent qualification.
