The data you have requested is provided to the Higher Education Statistics
Agency (HESA).

The HESA is the repository for data that is compiled by higher education
institutions across the United Kingdom and provides a resource not only to
those bodies, but also provides a data retrieval service to the public. We
also understand that the data is available from UCAS, via their Exact Data
Service.

We therefore claim an exemption under paragraph 21 (1) to (3) of the
Freedom of Information Act 2000:

21 Information accessible to applicant by other means

(1) Information which is reasonably accessible to the applicant otherwise
than under section 1 is exempt information.
(2) For the purposes of subsection (1)—
(a) information may be reasonably accessible to the applicant even though
it is accessible only on payment, and
(b) information is to be taken to be reasonably accessible to the
applicant if it is information which the public authority or any other
person is obliged by or under any enactment to communicate (otherwise than
by making the information available for inspection) to members of the
public on request, whether free of charge or on payment.
(3) For the purposes of subsection (1), information which is held by a
public authority and does not fall within subsection (2) (b) is not to be
regarded as reasonably accessible to the applicant merely because the
information is available from the public authority itself on request,
unless the information is made available in accordance with the
authority’s publication scheme and any payment required is specified in,
or determined in accordance with, the scheme.

HESA may be contacted by post at 95 Promenade, Cheltenham,
Gloucestershire, GL50 1HZ, by e-mail at:
