Undergraduate drop out rates

Chloé Meley made this Freedom of Information request to University of Birmingham

This request has been closed to new correspondence. Contact us if you think it should be reopened.

Response to this request is long overdue. By law, under all circumstances, University of Birmingham should have responded by now (details). You can complain by requesting an internal review.

Dear University of Birmingham,

Could you tell me the number of undergraduate students who have dropped out this academic year (2020-2021, up until this December), compared to the two previous academic years (2018-2019 and 2019-2020, for the whole year)?

Could you also break down this information into monthly categories (x number of students dropped out in September); UK/EU/international students; and into different faculties?

It would be great if you could provide this information in an excel spreadsheet, if possible.

If you need any clarification do not hesitate to contact me. Under section 16 of the Freedom of Information Act it is your duty to provide advice and assistance and so I would expect you to contact me if you find this request unmanageable in any way.

Yours faithfully,

Chloé Meley

University of Birmingham
