Dear Rajat


Thank you for your Freedom of Information request of 18^th February 2022. 


We have completed the compilation of information in response to your
request for information about admission statistics for postgraduate
programmes in UCL’s Bartlett School of Architecture for the 2020/21 and
2021/22 academic year.


We can confirm that we do hold some information of the description
specified in your request and this information is provided in the attached


As you will see within the attached spreadsheet, where the number of
applications, offers and acceptances 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(3A)(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
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
Vice-President (Operations), alternatively you should write to:

You should do this within two months of our final decision.
