Dear Aston University,

Under the Freedom of Information Act 2000, I’d like to make a request regarding the careers support services available at your university.

If possible, I’d like to receive data specific to the 2018/2019 academic year.

Specifically, I’d like to request data on the student careers services spend. (Excluding operational costs.)

This could fall under career support or careers programmes.

If this includes a combined group of departments, could you please specify each department and their individual spend?

If I could please receive the data in a spreadsheet format, that would be fantastic. Feel free to get in touch if you require any clarification from myself!

Yours faithfully,

Jamie Dixon

Dear Jamie

 

Further to your email, please could you clarify what costs you would like
to see covered by this request and which are to be excluded?  What is
included within the definition of “operational costs?”.

 

I look forward to hearing from you.

 

Kind regards.

 

Yours sincerely,

 

Alice Mineyko

Hi Alice,

Thank you for getting back to me. Apologies for the confusion but could I instead just receive the overall spend for the careers service (disregarding the 'operational costs' part of the request).

Yours sincerely,

Jamie Dixon
