Dear Royal Veterinary College,

May I request the admissions statistics for the undergraduate Biological Science courses (BSc Biological Sciences, BSc Bioveterinary Sciences, BSc Animal Biology, Behaviour, Welfare and Ethics) for the last 5 years, including information on: the number of students accepted to do the placement year for each course; the number of international students who applied and the number of international students who received an offer for each course?
Thank you very much!
