Dear Freedom of Information,

Thank you for providing this.

Is 2018/19 entry data (by country of domicile) available for a) number of applications, b) number of offers given out, c) number of offers accepted firmly by applicant?

Another recent FOI request (https://www.whatdotheyknow.com/request/a...) was able to provide 2018 entry data.

Thank you.

Yours sincerely,

Dear Mr/Ms Johnson,

Many thanks for your follow-up query to the University's response sent to you earlier today.

As we are mid-application cycle, we do not yet hold the exact figures requested for 2018/19 entry. We can however, look to provide you with provisional entry data for 2018/19 for number of applications, offers, and firm acceptances as requested with the caveat that this data will be subject change.

I am liaising with the relevant department to get this data processed and will get back to you on this in due course.

Kind Regards

June

Dear Ms Weir,

Thank you for sending this and contacting the relevant department for this. I just wanted to clarify the 2018/19 data in the 'Firm Acceptances' list and confirm that it is data for 'Firm Acceptances' rather than for 'Registered Entrants'?

Based on trends in previous years, the Firm Acceptances figure seem lower than expected.

Yours sincerely,

K. Johnson

Freedom of Information, University of St Andrews

Dear Mr/Ms Johnson,

My understanding of the data provided is that it does represent 'firm acceptances' at the point in time when the data was pulled together but I will liaise with my colleagues who provided the information to double check for you.

I will be back in touch in due course.

Kind Regards

June

Dear Mr/Ms Johnson,

Further to your follow-up query below and having consulted colleagues who processed the 2018/19 data previously provided to you, I can confirm that this represents 'Firm Acceptances' as at the time of processing your enquiry students would not have completed registration and so it was not possible to provide figures for registered entrants. As noted in our response, the data was being provided on the basis that it should be treated as provisional as at that stage of the application cycle the position constantly changes.

The University will not be in a position to confirm the final position until towards of the end of next month once all our records have been updated and the verification process is complete. If you would like to get back in touch at the end of October, we can re-run the figures for you.

I trust this explains the position.

Kind Regards

June
