Dear Queen Mary, University of London,
Under the terms of the Freedom of Information Act 2000, I kindly
request some raw data from you regarding university applications.
Information of all international (who qualify as non UK/EU fee status) applicants and offer holders respectively for M100 Undergraduate Law Course at Queen Mary, University of London for 2015, 2016, 2017 and 2018 entry:
1) Number of international students applied and places offered
2) Nationalities of offer holders
3) Predicted Grades or Achieved Grades in A level, IB or equivalent
Dear Chris Yeu,
Thank you for your email of 21^st November.
Please see the attached for most of the information you have requested.
However, it is not possible to fulfil your request in full. This is
because we estimate that to do so would exceed the appropriate limit as
defined by the Freedom of Information and Data Protection (Appropriate
Limit) Regulations 2004. For your information this is £450, calculated as
the estimated cost of one person spending 18 hours in determining whether
the information is held, then locating, retrieving and extracting the
information. Section 12 of the Freedom of Information Act 2000 therefore
makes provision for public authorities to refuse such requests.
Part 1 is complete. For part 2, we have provided the top 10 nationalities
of offer holders (and a summary of the remainder). For part 3, we have
provided data for A-Level and IB Diploma qualification records only.
Applicants typically declare all secondary school qualifications on the
UCAS application form, so manually sorting through all qualification
records to select A-Level equivalent options only, would exceed the
appropriate limit and so it is not possible to do this.
If you are dissatisfied with this response, you may ask QMUL to conduct a
review of this decision. To do this, please contact the College in
writing (including by fax, letter or email), describe the original
request, explain your grounds for dissatisfaction, and include an address
for correspondence. You have 40 working days from receipt of this
communication to submit a review request. When the review process has
been completed, if you are still dissatisfied, you may ask the Information
Commissioner to intervene. Please see www.ico.org.uk for details.
