Dear Sir/Madam,

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/independent school;

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

Best Regards,
Jason Markoutsis

Dear Jasonara,

 

This email sets out the University’s response to your request for
information. It has been processed in accordance with the requirements of
the Freedom of Information Act 2000 (“FOIA”).

 

I can confirm we hold some of the information that you requested. You
asked:

 

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/independent school;

 

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

 

The HESA for 2018 is not available yet. Please find below details for 2016
and 2017.

 

  2016 2017
% of students who are Black or Minority Ethnic (BME) 34.39% 34.93%
UK Domiciled from POLAR4 quintile 1 or 2 48.38% 42.75%
% of students who attended private/fee paying or independent 2.47% 1.85%
school

 

We are unable to respond to point D as we are only aware of the last
school or college that a student attended before coming to Leeds Beckett.
The majority of the students come from colleges and not secondary schools.

 

I trust that this concludes your request satisfactorily. If you are
dissatisfied with the way that your request has been handled, you may
request a review by emailing the Head of Information Governance on
[1][email address]. If you remain dissatisfied following the
conclusion of the internal review, you may apply to the Information
Commissioner whose address is: Wycliffe House, Water Lane, Wilmslow,
Cheshire, SK9 5AF.

 

Regards,

 

Rehana
