Economics and management applicants

Response to this request is long overdue. By law, under all circumstances, Brasenose College, Oxford should have responded by now (details). You can complain by requesting an internal review.

Dear Brasenose College, Oxford

Sorry to bother you, I would like some information regarding Economics Applicants under the Freedom of Information Act.

3. The percentage of direct applicants that are shortlisted for interviews from the years 2010 to 2016.
4. The ethnicity of applicants and offer holders expressed as a percentage from the years 2010 to 2016.

Dear Mr Lamming,

Thank you for your FOI request.

The College does not maintain records of either minor academic or non-academic offences since the response taken are regarded as cautions.
Only records of disciplinary actions (suspension or termination) are retained on file and details of these may only be disclosed with the consent of the persons concerned. There have, however, been no decanal actions leading to suspension or termination since Michaelmas 2011.

Brasenose’s Student Handbook contains information about academic and non-academic discipline, including indicative penalties. It is publically available for consultation at the following link http://www.bnc.ox.ac.uk/about-brasenose/... under “Student Policies, Rules and Regulations”.

As advised above, the number of students subject to Decanal fines (cautions, as opposed to disciplinary action resulting in suspension or termination) is not retained on file.
Receipts, however, indicate that an average of approximately £1.75 per student per year is levied in fines, which is consistent with very low incidence of offences and regulations that essentially amount to promoting good neighbourliness among students. The purpose of a caution or penalty is to deter repeat conduct that is disruptive to others. Should an individual encounter difficulties in paying a fine, he or she can ask to meet in confidence with the College Accountant to discuss the matter in confidence.

For guidance, I would estimate that at least 95% of students complete their programme of studies without receiving a single caution for unreasonable behaviour.

Regarding the Library, it is not current policy to issue fines - hence a nil return applies here too.

Yours sincerely,

Dr Simon Smith
Senior Tutor
