Dear Mr Chen

Thank you for your recent Freedom of Information request. Please find below the College's response to your questions.

1. List of all postgraduate taught courses that are open for the 2019/2020 admission cycle.
2. Number of applicants and offers made (all postgraduate taught programmes that are open to applicants) 3. Number of Chinese Mainland applications (exclude students from HongKong, Macau, or Taiwan) and offers made (all postgraduate taught programmes that are open to applicants)

The information you have requested is attached. Please note that numbers of 5 or fewer have been replaced with an asterisk. Information is exempt from disclosure under the Freedom of Information Act, Section 40(2), if it is personal data and releasing the information would breach one of the data protection principles contained in the Data Protection Act 2018/General Data Protection Regulations.

Statistical information can amount to personal information if it would be possible to identify the individual from that information or from that information and other information that may be available to the recipient of the information. Where small numbers are involved, the possibility that the receiver might be able to link the information to an individual is increased.

The GDPR principle (a) requires us to be lawful and fair in the way we handle a person's information. Disclosure to the public would contravene GDPR principle (a) because there is no lawful basis for processing the information for that purpose. When assessing fairness, we have to take into account what the individual's expectations are about how we might use their personal information and also any public interest that there might be in disclosure of the information. Our students would not expect to be made available to the public. We are not aware of any objective public interest arguments in favour of disclosure. This is a refusal notice in relation to the personal information aspect of your request, as required by the Freedom of Information Act.

If you are unhappy with the way that we have handled your request, you can ask us to conduct a review. Please make your representation in writing within 40 days of the date you received this response. If you remain dissatisfied with how Imperial College has handled your request you may then approach the Information Commissioner's Office.
 
Kind regards,

Freedom of Information Team
