Freedom of Information requests, University of Huddersfield

Dear Ms Bednarova,


Our response to your request for information dated 14 October 2019 is
provided below.


o We currently have 107 full time members of staff who have completed
Mental Health First Aid training. Please note that 79 part-time
members of staff have also completed the training.


o I can confirm that the University holds the information you are
seeking i.e. current number of students, however as the current
academic year (2019/20) has not yet ended, this data is not yet
validated. Section 22 of the Freedom of Information Act exempts this
information because this information is intended for publication at a
future date. Having considered public interest, our decision is
therefore to withhold the information. You might find it helpful to
review the [1]University publication scheme for student numbers for
previous years until 2017/18.


I hope this response satisfies your request, however, if you are
dissatisfied with the handling of your request, you have the right to ask
for an internal review. Internal review requests should be submitted
within 40 working days from the date of our response to your original
request and should be addressed to the University Secretary, University of
Huddersfield, Queensgate, Huddersfield HD1 3DH or by email to
[2][University of Huddersfield request email].


Please note that all copyright in this response belongs to the University
of Huddersfield; you are not permitted to publish, reproduce, copy or
