Dear Newcastle University,
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.
To assist with records management, please do not alter the subject line of this email.
Please accept this email as confirmation of receipt of your FOI request. We will forward your FOI request to the relevant Newcastle University department for processing.
