Nicole Garcia Merida

Dear University of the Arts London,

Under the Freedom of Information Act, I request the following information about all instances of sexual violence reported by students in all UAL campuses in the City of London.

- The number of reported instances of sexual assault
- The number of reported instances of rape
- How many of these result in expulsion for the perpetrator
- How many of these have been referred to the Police

By instances of sexual violence I mean those which British Law defines under the Sexual Offences Act (2003) and also instances that have been reported in which a student makes unwanted or inappropriate sexual advances towards another student.

I would like to receive all data available from September 2015 to present day in an academic year format.

I would prefer to receive this information electronically, preferably as a data set in Excel, NOT a PDF .

If there are parts of this request which are easier to answer than others I would ask that you release the available data as soon as it is ready.

If clarification is needed do not hesitate to contact me. I would be grateful if you could confirm in writing that you have received this request, and I look forward to hearing from you within the 20-working day statutory time period.

Regards, Nicole Garcia Merida.

Yours faithfully,

Nicole Garcia Merida
