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

Information Rights, Southampton Solent University

Dear Sir/Madam,

Re: Request for information under the Freedom of Information Act 2000.

Thank you for your request for information received by Southampton Solent
University on the 06 August 2019

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.

 

Please see the output for part A) and B).

 

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

 

%
ACADEMIC_YEAR BME
2016 41
2017 38
2018 36

 

 

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

% POLAR4
quintiles
ACADEMIC_YEAR 1 or 2.
2016 38
2017 46
2018 48

 

Please note, the students populating each year are distinct to only the
year, so if a student is on year 1 in 2016, year 2 in 2017 and year 3 in
2018, they will appear in all three figures as they progress through their
course.

The University has therefore carefully considered part c) and d) of your
request and has found the Information to be exempt under Section 12 of the
Freedom of Information Act 2000, where the cost of complying with the
request would exceed the appropriate cost limit as specified in the Act.

 

The University does not hold the level of detail requested and the
provision of any information would require considerable manual
intervention.

If you are dissatisfied with the handling of your request, please contact
the University’s Clerk of Governors, Southampton Solent University, East
Park Terrace, Southampton SO14 0YN, e-mail:
[1][email address] for an internal review.  Please note
that this does not affect your right to appeal to the Information
Commissioner’s Office ([2]www.ico.gov.uk) should you remain dissatisfied
with the University’s response.

 

Yours sincerely,

 

Information Rights
