Dear Kat,

Further to your Freedom of Information request below, the College's response is as follows:

Data with regard to the number of students who have graduated from the College with a qualification in Law are readily available from the HESA website. The College has been offering the LLB Law degree since 2015/16, and thus the College has no figures for 2016/17. Due to the low numbers of students studying on and graduating from the LLB Law course in 2017/18 and 2018/19, the College has determined that to release the requested breakdown would be to provide figures from which raw numbers could be easily calculated. This would reveal numbers which would ordinarily be withheld under section 40(2) of the Act, as they would allow for one or more individuals to be identified, which would breach the first data protection principle, that disclosure be fair and lawful. Therefore, the breakdown of percentages you have requested is withheld under sections 40(2)(b) and 40(3A) of the Freedom of Information Act.

If you are dissatisfied with the outcome of this request or the way it has been handled you can request an internal review by writing to:

Directorate of Governance & Legal Services
Royal Holloway, University of London
Egham

E: [email address]

In line with the Section 45 Code of Practice, a request for an internal review must be received within 40 working days of the date of this email.

If following the internal review you remain dissatisfied with the service provided you have the right to appeal directly to the Information Commissioners Office for a decision. For details visit www.ICO.gov.uk

Kind regards,
