Dear U.Khanna

 

FOI Request No. 338

 

Thank you for your email requesting information about CAS's assigned
(Under the Tier 4 General Visa Category).

 

We do hold information relating to Questions  1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 7, 8 and 9
and I have provided the information relating to questions 1, 2, 6 and 7 at
the foot of this email.    In relation to questions 3, 4, 8 and 9 our
preliminary assessment indicates that compliance with your request would
exceed the appropriate costs limit. This is currently calculated at 18
hours of staff time at a fixed cost of £25 per hour. Because the
information you request cannot be generated automatically and the process
of locating, retrieving and extracting the statistics would involve the
manual checking of all records for the periods requested it has been
estimated that this will take at least 50 hours.  We are therefore unable
to provide this information to you due to Exemption 12 of the FOI Act. 
Please note that we do not hold information which relates to questions 5
and 10. 

 

I am aware that much of the information we are unable to provide is held
by the UK Border Agency (namely questions 3, 4, 8 and 9) and you may want
to consider approaching the UKBA directly via an FOI to obtain this
information.

 

Your request is subject to the terms of the Freedom of Information Act
2000. Under these terms, you have the right of complaint. Your initial
course of action should be through the university’s own complaints
procedure. Please contact [1][email address] or the University Registrar &
Secretary, University of Hull, Hull, HU6 7RX within 20 days.  If you
remain dissatisfied with the handling of your request or complaint, you
have a right to appeal to the Information Commissioner at: The Information
Commissioner’s Office, Wycliffe House, Water Lane, Wilmslow, Cheshire, SK9
5AF.  Phone: 0303 123 1113 Website: [2]www.ico.gov.uk. There is no charge
for making an appeal.

 

 

Yours sincerely

Freedom of Information Officer
