Dear University of St Andrews,

Please also include 2017/18 data, if possible (with the exclusion of the number of entrants), given that the UCAS 15th January deadline has passed. If it would not be possible to provide 2017/18 data, please provide a date from when this data would be available.

Yours faithfully,

Freedom of Information, University of St Andrews

Dear Mr/Ms Johnson,

 

Many thanks for your enquiry below and your follow-up email dated 23 May,
2017.   For a request for information to be valid under the Freedom of
Information (Scotland) Act 2002 (FOISA) it needs to meet the following
criteria set out in section 8(1) of the Act i.e. the request:

 

                (a) is in writing or in another form which, by reason of
its having some permanency, is capable of being used for subsequent
reference;

                (b) states the name of the applicant and an address for
correspondence; and

                (c) describes the information requested.

 

The way your request for information is framed does not meet the
requirements of items (a) and (c).   To assist you in your enquiry and to
make your request for information valid I have outlined below the
information that I understand you to be seeking after reviewing the
earlier documentation referred to in your email correspondence:

 

1.       Full time UCAS home fee applications to Undergraduate programmes
for years of entry 2015/16 and 2016/17 showing the number of:

·         Applications

·         Offers

·         Acceptances

·         Entrants

Brokendown by Faculty and Subject.

 

2.       Data for 2017/18 to be included if possible (with the exclusion
of the number of entrants), given that the UCAS 15 January deadline has
passed.  If it is not possible to provide 2017/18 data, please provide a
data from when this data would be available.

 

I would be grateful if you could confirm whether or not the above
accurately describes the information you require to enable your enquiry to
be taken forward?  I am asking for this point of clarification as part of
the University’s duty under Section 15 of the FOISA  to provide advice and
assistance to enquirers.  The level of detail and clarification requested
is important for three reasons:

 

·         To make your request for information valid under the FOISA.

·         To safeguard your own rights.  In the event that the University
answered your enquiry in such a way that you were unhappy with the
response given, after an internal review, your next course of action would
be to appeal to the Scottish Information Commissioner.  The Commissioner
however, is unable to deal with any applications where it is found that
the original enquiry was invalid.

·         To ensure that your request for information is being interpreted
correctly and that you are supplied with the data you require.

 

This request for additional information is made under Section 1(3) of the
Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002.  Please note that under
Section 10(1)(b) of the Act, the University has 20 working days after
receipt of the clarification that is being sought in which to comply with
your request. 

 

Your request will therefore be held pending until I hear from you further.

 

Yours sincerely,

 

June
