Greg Auger made this Freedom of Information request to University of Manchester

This request has been closed to new correspondence from the public body. Contact us if you think it ought be re-opened.

The request was successful.

Dear the University of Manchester,

Under the Freedom of Information Act, please can you provide me with the following information regarding undergraduate admissions:

For each of the last four undergraduate application cycles (for typical entry in 2008 through to 2011), seperately for Home (UK) students, 'other' EU students and for International students:
1. The number of applications revieved through UCAS by the standard deadline for equal consideration (15th January for most courses, but 15th October, 24th March, etc where applicable).
2. The number of offers made to applicants (of those in #1).
3. The number of students (of those in #2) who made the university their "firm".
4. The number of students (of those in #2) who made the university their "insurance".
5. The number of those in #3 who enrolled at the university in the Autumn.
6. The number of those in #4 who enrolled at the university in the Autumn.
7. The number of students who enrolled at the university in the Autumn, but are not included in #1. This should include students accepted through "clearing" and "adjustment" and anyone else who did not submit an application by the standard deadline referred to in #1.

Please include deferred applications in the application cycle they were submitted in, rather than in the following cycle.

For the 2011 cycle, I appreciate definitive numbers for #5, #6 and #7 may not be known, but please can you provide the latest estimates based on available data.

I believe this should be 84 pieces of data. I look forward to your response, which I would ask you to provide in either plain text or an ISO standard spreadsheet document (either OpenDocument Spreadsheet ISO/IEC 26300:2006 or Office Open XML Workbook ECMA-376 ISO/IEC 29500) as I am entitled to ask under Section 11 of the Freedom of Information Act.

Yours faithfully,
G. Auger.

Dear Mr Auger

 

Thank you for your recent email requesting the following:

 

     Under the Freedom of Information Act, please can you provide me

     with the following information regarding undergraduate admissions:

    

     For each of the last four undergraduate application cycles (for

     typical entry in 2008 through to 2011), seperately for Home (UK)

     students, 'other' EU students and for International students:

     1. The number of applications revieved through UCAS by the standard

     deadline for equal consideration (15th January for most courses,

     but 15th October, 24th March, etc where applicable).

     2. The number of offers made to applicants (of those in #1).

     3. The number of students (of those in #2) who made the university

     their "firm".

     4. The number of students (of those in #2) who made the university

     their "insurance".

     5. The number of those in #3 who enrolled at the university in the

     Autumn.

     6. The number of those in #4 who enrolled at the university in the

     Autumn.

     7. The number of students who enrolled at the university in the

     Autumn, but are not included in #1. This should include students

     accepted through "clearing" and "adjustment" and anyone else who

     did not submit an application by the standard deadline referred to

     in #1.

 

The attached table provides the information requested. Please note that
the University counts deferred applications in the year of entry rather
than the year of application and they are included by year of entry in
these figures. The data on the number of students enrolled at the
University for 2011 is of course provisional at this stage.

 

I trust the above concludes your request.

 

With best regards

 

Lisa Crawley
