Dear Finance.FOI Requests,

Yes, it means the statistics for 2020/2021

Yours sincerely,

YINGSHU CHEN

Dear Ryan

 

Thank you for your request of 5 October and for the clarification you
provided.

 

You asked for the latest admission statistics for the following courses:

·       BSc Statistics, economics and a language

·       BSc Statistical Science

 

You clarified that you requested this information for the 2020/21
admission cycle.

 

I confirm that we hold the information you requested and it is set out in
the table below

 

Academic
Year Course code Course name Applications Offers Intake
BSc
2020 UBSSTASING18 Statistics 163 99 38
BSc
Statistics,
Economics
and a
2020 UBSSTASSEL18 Language 43 24 <5

 

As you can see within the table above, where the number of entrants 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:

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.)
