Dear Teuta Hoxha,

We have completed the compilation of information in response to your request.

We can confirm that we do hold the information specified in your request. Our response is given in the attached spreadsheet.

Please note - the data provided is snapshot data relating to academic staff employed on 1 October of each year. To provide data on 'academics' only, we have used our standard definition of academic. A member of staff would be considered an academic member if their role was one of the following: associate professor, academic, lecturer, professor, researcher, research professor, clinical academic, reader and senior lecturer. The data does not include sessional staff.

In order to assist as much as possible without disclosing data that could contain personally identifying data, protected under Section 40 (2) of the FOIA, we have grouped some categories of ethnicity and the totals of two groups for years 16 and 17 due to some very low numbers being involved.

We are required to include details of our complaints procedures, including your rights to apply to the Information Commissioner. The procedure is detailed in our Freedom of Information and Environmental Information Regulations policy on the web at

If we are unable to resolve any complaint, you can complain to the Information Commissioner, the independent body who oversees the access to information regimes:

Information Commissioner
Wycliffe House
Water Lane

Email: [email address]

Yours sincerely

Rebecca Daniells
