“You will appreciate that all information requests place some degree of
demand on a public authority’s resources in terms of costs and staff time

(COVID-19) pandemic.

Dear Jiaming Cheng

Thank you for your request of 19 October. I apologise for the delay in
responding to your request.

You asked for the following information for every postgraduate taught
programme for the 2020/21, 2019/20 and 2018/19 admission cycles:

- the programme name,
- the programme code,
- the number of applications,
- the number of offers made,
- the number of acceptances,
- the number of enrolments.

I confirm that we hold the information you requested and it is set out in
the attached spreadsheet.

As you can see within the attached spreadsheet, where the number of
applicants, offers or acceptances is fewer than 5, the information has
been withheld because this is personal data of third parties or, if linked
with other personal identifiers in the public domain, would be likely to
become personal data. This information has been withheld under Section
40(2) of the FOIA by virtue of Section 40 (3)(a)(i).

Section 40(2) of the FOIA allows a public authority to withhold
information under the FOIA where (i) the requested information is personal
data relating to someone other than the requester and (ii) its disclosure
would breach any of the Data Protection principles. In this case we
believe that the requested information could relate to and identify
individuals and therefore would be personal data. The disclosure of these
personal data would not be within the reasonable expectations of the
individuals concerned and it would be unfair to do so; this therefore
breaches the first Data Protection principle.

As the Section 40(2) exemption is an absolute one there is no need to
conduct a public interest test.

You are free to use any information supplied for your own use, including
for non-commercial research purposes. The information may also be used for
the purposes of news reporting. However, any other type of re-use, for
example by publishing or issuing copies to the public, will require the
permission of the copyright owner.

If you are unhappy with our response to your request and wish to make a
further complaint or request a review of our decision, please email
[1][email address]. Emails should include the words ‘Internal
Review’ in the subject and be marked For the Attention of the Chief
Operating Officer, alternatively you should write to:

Chief Operating Officer
University College London
Gower Street
London
WC1E 6BT

If you are not content with the outcome of the internal review, you may
apply directly to the Information Commissioner at the address given below.
You should do this within two months of our final decision. (Please note,
complaints and requests for internal review received more than two months
after the initial decision will not be handled.)

If you have any queries or concerns, please contact me using the details
provided in this email and including the request reference number.
