Dear University of Edinburgh,

I am writing to you to seek information regarding the Public Policy MSc admissions statistics for both 2019/20 and 2020/21 admissions (the latter being ongoing).

I hope to find data for:

1) The number of applicants to the course
2) The number of offers made
3) The number of students who have accepted the offer

For the 2020/21 year, I hope to find information regarding the above three points as of 31.05.2020.

Yours faithfully,

Mr J Daniels
