Degree outcomes of overseas students

Mark Carver made this Freedom of Information request to University of Edinburgh

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 University of Edinburgh,

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:

Nationality
Gender
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classification (or, if available, average percentage from modules in each year of study) or alternative outcome, e.g. withdrawn from studies, transferred university, etc.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

Records Management, University of Edinburgh

Dear Records Management,

Thank you for the clarification. I am happy for data to be aggregated as you feel necessary. Thank you also for clarifying the target students for your pre-sessional programmes - would it be possible to include postgraduate students so that I have a larger dataset to work with?

Yours sincerely,

Mark Carver
