Ivan I Kazan made this Freedom of Information request to University of Glasgow

Automatic anti-spam measures are in place for this older request. Please let us know if a further response is expected or if you are having trouble responding.

The request was partially successful.

Dear University of Glasgow,

In relation to the course 'The Russian Novel' in the academic year 2017/18, please provide:
- the external examiner's written report
- any correspondence between staff only or between staff and the external examiner concerning the external examiner's scrutiny of the course
- minutes, notes or other records from the exam board meetings regarding this course

If these requests are too broad, I am happy to clarify further. Thank you!

Yours faithfully,

Ivan Kazan

FOI Office,







The staff of the University of Glasgow, including the Data Protection &
Freedom of Information Office, are now working off-campus. A number of
staff have also temporarily left their university work and research in
order to help the NHS with the public health crisis. University operations
have been disrupted and this will affect our ability to retrieve data and
respond to requests. 

At this time, we cannot provide definitive guidance on response times. If
your request is time sensitive, and is therefore unlikely to be responded
to within your required timescale, please advise if you wish to suspend or
withdraw your request.

Finally, please be assured that we will endeavour, where possible, to
respond to you as soon as we can.

 

FOI Office,

Dear  Ivan I Kazan,

Thank you for your email which was received by the University on 04 June

Dear FOI Office,

While I appreciate that the pandemic has affected many organisations in many ways, most have managed to maintain some level of business continuity and have continued to meet the restored 20 day time limit. It is disappointing that the University of Glasgow cannot even muster an email to explain being 18 days overdue.

Please give an estimate of when you will be able to meet your statutory obligations and respond to this request.

Yours sincerely,

Ivan I Kazan

Dear FOI Office,

Thank you very much for this information and thank you for your help. Can you please tell me whether the hard copy of the exam board minutes will be available once staff return to work? And, if so, should I submit a new request afresh in a few months or will you be able to provide them under this one when they become available?

Thank you very much again.

Yours sincerely,

Ivan I Kazan

FOI Office,

Dear Ivan Kazan, 

 

As the majority of University of Glasgow staff, including staff in the
College of Arts, are currently working from home, we are unable to confirm
if a hard copy of the exam board minutes are held until staff return to
the University campus at a date as yet unknown. 

Yours sincerely,
