Politics Postgraduate Admissions

We're waiting for Arthur Burgess to read a recent response and update the status.

Dear University of Warwick,

I wish to make a request surrounding Postgraduate taught courses in the PAIS department, specifically Public Policy.

If I may, I would like to request date for each academic year from 2015-16 up until 2019-20.

In each year, how many applications were there for the masters degree in Public Policy, and how many were awarded offers? I would also like to request a breakdown of the undergraduate degree classifications those who enrolled on the course held.

Yours faithfully,

Mr Arthur

Data notes:

 

·       Please note that where the University has stated the value as ‘<’
it declines to provide the actual figure on the grounds that the numbers
are very small and could potentially lead to the identification of
individuals, which may place the University in breach of the General Data
Protection Regulation 2016 and the Data Protection Act 2018. The
University is relying on the exemption under section 40(2) of the Freedom
of Information Act 2000 in this regard.

I trust that this information will be helpful to you, but if you are
