To whom it may concern,

The following request refers to students who enrolled in a law-related (i.e. Group M) course at the university in the following three years: 2016, 2017, 2018.

By ‘law-related course’, I refer to both single honours law and any law with a language, law with a year abroad, or joint honours law programmes which admitted students during this period.

My request:

Please provide the following information about the relevant students’ background for each of the three years (2016, 2017, 2018):

a. The % of students who are Black or Minority Ethnic (‘BME’);

b. The % of UK-domiciled students who have come from a postcode that falls within POLAR4 young participation quintiles 1 or 2;

c. The % of all students (UK and EU and non-EU) who attended a private/fee-paying school;

d. The 10 most commonly-occurring secondary schools among all students who enrolled, whether these schools are located in the UK or abroad. Please provide this as a list in descending order of enrolment.

Yours sincerely,

Jasonara Stathamara

Dear Mehwish,

Just to clarify, does the data on question (c) (private schools) cover all enrolled students, or only those who had attended school in the UK?

Dear Jasonara,

Apologies for the delay in getting back to you.

We only hold school type data for schools in the UK.

For all schools outside the UK, we have no way of knowing if they are state-funded or independent.

Therefore the data is only for those who had attended school in the UK.
