The request was refused by University of Glasgow.

Dear University of Glasgow,

Under Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002, I wish to receive the following information within 20 working days. Please provide the following in a single file comprehensibly stated word document:
a) The average expected study hours per course on a weekly basis. Please ensure this information includes all the courses your institution offers and clearly displays what academic school the course is part of.
Please also ensure that all academic years of the course are included in the figure, meaning to say, that if a student was enrolled in ‘course x’ for which he/she was expected to spend 15 hours of study hours per week in year 1; 15 hours in year 2; 18 hours in year 3; and 20 hours in year 4; the average (mean) amount of study hours of that entire course would be 17 hours per week.

b) Using the same formula, the average class time per course on a weekly basis.

c) The average of study hours of all those courses put together.

d) The average of class time of all those courses put together.

Yours faithfully,

Jeroen van Herk
