Application statistics for BSc Psychological and Behavioural Sciences 2020/21

The request was successful.

Dear London School of Economics,

I would like to request the application statistics for the BSc Psychological and Behavioural Science programme for 2020/21. 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);
- the number of applicants who were UK/home versus international students; and
- the dates of offers given out, and the number of offers given on each date.

Thank you in advance and I look forward to hearing from you.

Yours faithfully,

Alison Smith

GLPD.Info.Rights, London School of Economics

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 Alison

 

Further to your recent FoI request, the Schools response is provided in
the attached spreadsheet.

 

Could I ask you to think about the underlying question that is prompting
your data request. If you are attempting to find out what are your chances
of getting a place, remember that this cannot be answered by reference to
data. Applications are considered on their individual merits, based on a
holistic view of your supporting documents in the context of the current
cohort. Figures from previous years will not offer any insight on your
application. Your best way to find the answer is to apply.

 

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 [1]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

infringement of copyright or other intellectual property right belonging
