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

Hi Rachel,

I was looking through your response, and I had a couple of questions in relation to it:

1) Would it be possible to provide the data for the students who enrolled in 2016, as requested? The university has provided 2017-2019.

2) Would it be possible to provide the names of the sixth forms/colleges as bullet points? As provided, it's unclear as to where one name ends and a new one begins!

Thank you for your continued attention and support.

Yours sincerely,

Jason
