Why can't they list the courses that the "less than 5" people are studying. Surely that isn't personal information. How can that possibly be personal information?

Dear University of Glasgow,

Please pass this on to the person who conducts Freedom of Information reviews.

I am writing to request an internal review of University of Glasgow's handling of my FOI request 'Finance Office staff studying at the University'.

Further to the annotation left on 16 February 2011 by Lorna Stevens, please review this request.

There is a Finance Office employee, Julie Lee, studying for a MBA in our School and her £7000+ annual fee is paid for by the University. I am not sure why the University keeps this a secret, everyone here knows about it. It is highly commendable that the Finance Office takes such good care of its staff and the University pays for them to be educated. However is it feasible that the public, which ultimately funds the University, would benefit much more if this money was used to pay University teachers who can potentially educate hundreds. Perhaps working for the University's Finance Office comes with some perks.
