Dear London School of Economics,
Under the Freedom of Information Act may I kindly request you to provide the following information:
(1) Can you please provide the number of application, offers and final intake for each of the graduate programmes at the LSE?
(2) Can you please provide the number of application, offers and final intake for each of the graduate programmes at the LSE, for Chinese nationality applicants only?
(3)Can you please provide the number of application, offers and final intake for Chinese nationality applicants at the LSE, broke down into the university they attended for their bachelor's degree?
If possible, please can you provide these statistics for the 2020,2019,2018,2017 and 2016 entry admissions cycle?
Thank you for your email. As you will appreciate, information requests
place additional demands on the School in terms of costs and staff time.
At present we are having to prioritise our finite resources in order to
meet the unprecedented challenges we are facing during the Coronavirus
(COVID-19) pandemic. As such, we need to advise you that while we will
continue to process individual requests, you may experience some delay in
our response during the current pandemic.
As you made very similar requests at about the same time, the School is providing the same response to you, which is attached.
Please note, we are unable to provide a response for 3. as this information gets overwritten on each application.
If you think that the information provided does not meet your request, contact me on 020 7849 4622 or write to Louise Nadal, School Secretary, London School of Economics and Political Science, Houghton Street, London, WC2A 2AE. We will then review the response to your request and get back to you within 20 working days. You can also contact the Information Commissioner's Office http://www.ico.gov.uk/, though they expect the internal review to be carried out before receiving a complaint directly.
The provision of information by the LSE under the Freedom of Information Act 2000 does not imply a right to copy, reproduce publish or otherwise use such information.
Copying or reproducing such information in any way either in whole or in part without prior written consent may be an infringement of copyright or other intellectual property right belonging to the LSE or a third party.
