In any case, if you can identify ways that my request could be refined please provide further advice and assistance to indicate this.

I look forward to your response within 20 working days, as stipulated by the Act. If you have any queries please don’t hesitate to contact me and I will be happy to clarify what I am asking for.

Yours faithfully,

Good morning Robert,

Thank you for your request for information dated 10/07/2019.

The information you requested is available to you through the Higher Education Statistics Agency (HESA). HESA publish a range of statistics each year and can also be approached to provide bespoke analyses. As this information is already accessible to you elsewhere, it is exempt from disclosure under Section 21 of the Act.

I hope that this is of use. If you are unhappy with the way we have handled your request you can ask for an internal review. Details of how to do this can be found at: http://www.ncl.ac.uk/foi/access/complain...

If you are not happy with the outcome of the internal review, you then have the right to apply directly to the Information Commissioner's Office for a decision. Details of how to do this can be found at: http://ico.org.uk/concerns
