EU Academic Staff

Matthew Taylor made this Freedom of Information request to University of Sussex

This request has been closed to new correspondence from the public body. Contact us if you think it ought be re-opened.

The request was successful.

Dear University of Sussex,

I was very worried to hear of a recent study that claimed that there was a 19% rise in EU academics leaving UK universities over the past year.

May I submit an FOI request concerning Sussex's overall levels of EU academic staff? In particular I would like to know how many EU academic staff have left the university over the last year and how many new EU staff have joined you since. Any help with this would be greatly appreciated.

Yours faithfully,
Matthew Taylor

Dear Mr Taylor,

 

Thank you for your recent Freedom of Information request.

 

Before we are able to process your request we require some clarification
from you.

 

You have asked for information regarding ‘Sussex's overall levels of EU
academic staff’.   In particular you would like to know ‘how many EU
academic staff have left the university over the last year and how many
new EU staff have joined since’. 

 

For the purposes of processing your request, please can you confirm
whether you wish to be provided with information in relation to Non-UK EU
staff only, or whether you require UK EU staff numbers to be included? 
Please would you also advise whether you are happy to receive the
information collated by the Universities accounting year (which would be
from 1 August 2016 to 31 July 2017)?

 

On receipt of this clarification we can proceed with your request.

 

Kind regards
