Dear University College London,
I was wondering if it would be possible to produce a breakdown of admissions statistics for all MRes and MSc postgraduate courses for entry in 2021 (this current admissions cycle). Specifically I would like to know (for every course) how many applications were received and how many EU applicants there were. I understand the admissions cycle for entry this September is not over yet, could you please provide any data you have so far?
I apologise for the inconvenience that my request would inevitably bring and I look forward to hearing from you. Thank you kindly.

unprecedented challenges we are all facing during the Coronavirus
