Professional doctorates and MRes details

Mark Carver made this Freedom of Information request to Glasgow Caledonian University

This request has been closed to new correspondence from the public body. Contact us if you think it ought be re-opened.

The request was successful.

I am currently looking at professional doctorates and masters of research across some UK institutions and have some data which I could not find using your website.
The courses of interest at your university are as follows:

MRes Biological and Biomedical Sciences
DMan Management
DBA Business Administration
DPsych Counselling Psychology
Doctorate Built Environment
Doctorate Health, Social Care and Nursing
EngD Engineering
Doctorate Justice Welfare and Police

For each of the above courses, I wish to know:

Student contact hours
Total fees Home
Total fees International
Current number on roll
Latest available retention/attrition rate for the course (i.e. the number of students who complete the course for which they initially registered within 1 year of the normal expected completion date, or whatever your own definition of retention is).

I believe that I have listed all the relevant MRes, MSc/MA by research, and non-PhD doctorate courses you currently offer. However, if I have missed any during my search of your website please include those courses in the list above.

Thank you for your help.

Yours faithfully,

Dr Mark Carver

Freedom of Information Enquiries,

Dear Mr Carver

I refer to your request for information. The University is considering this and would like to receive clarification on one of the questions.

Could you let us know exactly what you mean by Total Fees Home and Total Fees International as we can think of various ways of interpreting this?

Do you mean :
the Total fee payable for the whole course by a student?
The fee payable by a student for each year of the course?
The total fee income from all the home students on all the courses listed who have undertaken the course in a particular year, and all the international students?

Once we have received clarification we will begin processing your request. Until that stage, it is on hold.

Yours sincerely

Jean Ash

Dear Freedom of Information Enquiries,

Thank you for your quick reply. I'm taking 'fees' simply as what is typically given on the website, i.e. the amount a student pays per year full-time equivalent. I have also included any compulsory fees in my definition, such as certificate issue fees or bench fees for labs, so please also list these and whether they are annual or one-off charges.

Thank you.

Yours sincerely,

Mark Carver

Dear Freedom of Information Enquiries,

Thank you for your response. By fees I mean annual programme tuition fees for full-time students. Where there are compulsory fees (e.g. bench/lab fees, certificate printing fees), I am also including these and dividing by the number of FTE years.

I hope this is clearer, but please let me know if not.

Yours sincerely,

Mark Carver
