Dear Mr Bergin

From our preliminary assessment, it is clear that we will not be able to answer your request without further clarification.

The University requires further information in order to identify and locate the information you have asked for in relation to the expulsion of students. In particular, it would be useful to know what you mean by 'expulsion' eg are you referring to students that were:

1) Expelled as in thrown out for misconduct etc
2) Expelled and/or suspended for misconduct
3) Asked to leave on academic grounds – ie not good to progress

Once you have clarified your request, I will be able to begin to process it.

regards
