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

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
