Dear Ziyi Zhao

 

Thank you for your Freedom of Information request of 3^rd August 2023.

 

We have completed the compilation of information in response to your
request for the following information about UCL’s graduate admission
statistics for 2023/24:

 

 1. List of all postgraduate programmes
 2. Numbers of all applications (each specific programme)
 3. Numbers of all offers made (each specific programme)
 4. Numbers of Chinese nationality applications (each specific programme)
 5. Numbers of Chinese nationality offers made (each specific programme)

 

We can confirm that we do hold information of the description specified in
your request and this information is provided in the attached spreadsheet.

 

As you will see within the attached spreadsheet, where the number of
individuals is five or fewer the information has been withheld.  We have
also withheld totals where this would enable you to work out other
withheld information.  This information has been withheld because, with
such low numbers, even providing the information without names, there is a
risk that the individuals may be identifiable.  This information has been
withheld under Section 40(2) of the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) by
virtue of Section 40(3A)(i).

 

Section 40(2) of the FOIA allows a public authority to withhold
information under the FOIA where (i) the requested information is personal
data relating to someone other than the requester, and (ii) its disclosure
would breach any of the Data Protection principles.  In this case, we
believe that the requested information could relate to and identify
individuals and therefore would be personal data.  The disclosure of these
personal data would not be within the reasonable expectations of the
individuals concerned and it would be unfair to do so; this therefore
breaches the first Data Protection principle. 

 

As the Section 40(2) exemption is an absolute one, there is no need to
conduct a public interest test.

 

 

You are free to use any information supplied for your own use, including
for non-commercial research purposes. The information may also be used for
the purposes of news reporting. However, any other type of re-use, for
example by publishing or issuing copies to the public, will require the
permission of the copyright owner.

 

If you are unhappy with our response to your request and wish to make a
complaint or request a review of our decision, please email
[1][email address]. Emails should include the words ‘Internal
Review’ in the subject and be marked For the Attention of the
Vice-President (Operations), alternatively you should write to:

 

Vice-President (Operations)

Please note, complaints and requests for internal review received more
than two months after the initial decision will not be handled.

 

If you are not content with the outcome of the internal review, you may
apply directly to the Information Commissioner by using the following web
address: [2]www.ico.org.uk/foicomplaints. You should do this within two
months of our final decision.
