Dear M. B. Floyd,

 

Freedom of Information Request (our reference FOI20-492)

 

We refer to your Freedom of Information request dated 18^th October.  You
requested the following information:

 

“I would like to request admissions statistics for University of Bristol's
Doctorate in Educational Psychology (DEdPsy).

I would like to request the following admissions statistics, covering the
period from 2014-2015 academic year to present:

° How many students applied?
° How many students were accepted?
° How many self-funded students applied?
° How many self-funded students were accepted?”

 

University’s Response

 

Further to Section 1 of the Freedom of Information Act 2000 (the “Act”) we
confirm that the information requested is held by the University of
Bristol (the “University”).

 

Please find the information requested in the table below:

 

Funded Applications submitted Intake (AEP
Applicant Year  applications via direct to UoB online funded route
AEP website  application system – only) 
includes self-funded
2014  109  11  10

Please note that the University does not release exact counts of less than
five because these are personal data of third parties or, if linked with
other personal identifiers in the public domain, would be likely to become
personal data. This information has been withheld under section 40(2) of
the Act, on the grounds that disclosure would likely breach the data
protection principles enshrined in the Data Protection Act 2018.

 

Internal Review Procedure

 

If you are dissatisfied with the handling of your request, then you have a
right under Section 50 of the Act to request an internal review.  All such
requests must be sent to us within 40 days, and must clearly state our
reference number (at the top of this email) and your reason for requesting
an internal review.  We will aim to respond to your request for an
internal review within 20 working days of receipt.

Should you remain dissatisfied with the final outcome of the internal
review then you may apply directly to the Information Commissioner (the

Body responsible for overseeing the Freedom of Information Act 2000, the
Data Protection Act 2018 and The Environmental Information Regulations
2004.
