Dear James,

 

Thank you for your email of 22 August 2018 requesting admissions
statistics. I am writing to let you know that we have received your email,
and to help you make a valid request.

 

To ensure your request is valid and that the University is obliged to
answer it, you must provide your real name, including your surname and at
least the initial of your first name. If you are making the request on
behalf of someone else you must provide their real name.

 

The Office of the Scottish Information Commissioner provides guidance on
this point at

The guidance explains that if you do not provide your real name or the
name of the person on whose behalf you are making the request, you will

Dear Mr Davenport

 

Freedom of information request, review request, and correction

 

Thank you for your email of 26 November 2018 requesting a review of the
University’s handling of your request for admissions statistics for two
MSc degree programmes on the basis that we have failed to provide a
response within the statutory 20 working days.  Please find attached our
response to your original request of 18 September 2018, and your review
request of 26 November 2018.

 

The attached response also provides a correction to the figures we
provided in our response of 18 September 2018, to your request of 22
August 2018, requesting the same admissions statistics for MSc Artificial
Intelligence.

 

We sincerely apologise again for the delay in responding to your request. 
As previously explained this is due to us currently experiencing an
exceptionally high volume of requests and staff shortages.

 

Kind regards

Iain
