Admissions with and because of NCSC and ICCE qualifications

University of Aberdeen did not have the information requested.

Dear University of Aberdeen,

According to http://icce.education/information-for/un... you have admitted one or more students to your institution (in this case, for medicinal chemistry) with a NCSC or ICCE qualification.

Could you please provide two pieces of information:

1 - The total number of students admitted with an NCSC or ICCE qualification.
2 - The total number of students admitted BECAUSE they had an NCSC or ICCE qualification (as opposed to other experience or qualifications).

Yours faithfully,

David Waldock

Foi, University of Aberdeen

Dear Mr Waldock

FREEDOM OF INFORMATION REQUEST FOI 2017-071

I refer to your email of 11 March 2017 requesting information relating to students admitted to the University of Aberdeen with a NCSC or ICCE qualification.

Your request has now been considered under the Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002, ‘the Act’.

I am unable to supply the information you have requested. This is because the recording systems we use to administer applications for admission to the University, and to administer students registered to study at the University, do not describe qualifications broken down to this level: the qualifications of applicants are classified into larger categories rather than being recorded by each particular type. Furthermore, the physical record of application for admission from each student is not retained after the admissions process is complete, so those records do not provide a source of information to answer your request. Please accept this message as a notice under section 17(1)(b) of the Act that the information you have requested is not held by the University.

Should you be dissatisfied with this response, you have the right under the Act, to request a review. A request for review must be made within 40 working days of the date of this reply. It must include your name and address for correspondence and specify the request for information and the grounds for dissatisfaction with the decision. Please send your request for review to our mailbox, [University of Aberdeen request email]. The University will respond to your request for a review within 20 working days of receipt of your request.

If you are unhappy with the outcome of the University’s internal review process, you have the right to appeal to the Scottish Information Commissioner, within 6 months from the date of receipt of the University’s review notice. Details on how to make an appeal to the Commissioner are available at: www.itspublicknowledge.info/Appeal. Should you remain dissatisfied with the Commissioner’s decision, you have a right of appeal to the Court of Session on a point of law.

Yours sincerely,
Iain Gray
University Data Protection Officer
