The total number of full time employees who currently hold certification
in Mental Health First Aid is 31. 

 

I would like to also kindly ask for the total number of students attending
your university at the moment. 

 

The information requested for the academic year 2019-20 will not be
approved for publication with Office for Students (OfS) until spring 2021
and is therefore exempt under section 22 of the Freedom of Information Act
2000, Information intended for future publication.

All Universities and other higher education providers in the UK are
required to submit annual information to [1]HESA (the Higher Education
Statistics Agency). If the answer to your query is available from HESA you
can expect comparable and consistent data for all HE providers while
saving the time and resources of publicly funded universities.  

 

HESA publishes open data under a Creative Commons license about students,
staff, finance and other aspects of higher education. HESA can also
provide tailored datasets to answer specific questions, although HESA
itself is not a public authority under the Freedom of Information Act 2000
and may charge a fee for the provision of tailored data extracts. 

 

UCAS is an independent charity that provides the UK’s national
undergraduate admissions service. Every year, we help around 700,000
students apply for full-time undergraduate courses, at nearly 400 UK
universities and colleges. Each cycle, release statistics and reports for
UCAS Undergraduate applications, at key points in the cycle, covering
patterns and trends across the year.
