Degree outcomes of overseas students

Dear Lancaster University,

I am interested in any relationship between language proficiency scores and final degree classification for overseas undergraduates who may or may not have taken a pre-sessional programme. I would like to analyse this at student level so please anonymise each individual’s data but do not provide aggregates (e.g. if there are 5 management students who entered with IELTS 7.0 and got a 2.1 degree, I want this listed with a line for each).
For each student enrolled in the 2012/3 year I would like to know:

Programme title (JACS code)
Language requirement IELTS band for the programme
IELTS band (or TOEFL/PTE score if applicable) attained on entry
Whether the student enrolled on a pre-sessional programme or entered their undergraduate programme directly.
Pre-sessional grade (if applicable).
Final degree classification (or, if available, average percentage from modules in each year of study) or alternative outcome, e.g. withdrawn from studies, transferred university, etc.

Thank you for your help.

Yours faithfully,

Mark Carver
