Dear Rob,

Further to your recent FoI request, the Schools response is provided below:

Please find attached the response to question 1. The following should be noted by the requester (and same information is on the attached spreadsheet, too)

1. We cannot provide data for "final semester" as registration is continuous at LSE and we do not operate a semester model of registration. The data provided therefore is from the end of academic year 2021/2.

2. Equalities data is not mandatory all levels of study, e.g. Summer School, and therefore the total numbers that appear in relation to nationality, ethnicity and disability will be less than the overall total of all registered students across all modes of study.

3. The data on English language requirement is overwritten and therefore is it not possible to provide data on this aspect.

If you think that the information provided does not meet your request, contact Rachael Maguire at [email address] or write to Louise Nadal, School Secretary, London School of Economics and Political Science, Houghton Street, London, WC2A 2AE. We will then review the response to your request and get back to you within 20 working days. You can also contact the Information Commissioner's Office http://www.ico.gov.uk/, though they expect the internal review to be carried out before receiving a complaint directly.

The provision of information by the LSE under the Freedom of Information Act 2000 does not imply a right to copy, reproduce publish or otherwise use such information. Copying or reproducing such information in any way either in whole or in part without prior written consent may be an infringement of copyright or other intellectual property right belonging to the LSE or a third party.
