Dear The Higher Education Academy,
I am writing to you to ask for statistics which can show me if the amount of university dropouts has increased or decreased in 2020, compared to other years. Thankyou for your time.
Yours faithfully, Ellie Spark, Journalism Student at the University of South Wales.
Dear Ms Spark,
Thank you for getting in touch with us to ask for these statistics. We don’t actually collect or hold them. However, HESA (the Higher Education Statistic Agency) will have them.
I’m confident these statistics are in the public domain, and I’d very surprised if you’ll need to request their release via a FOI.
(Just for information, Advance HE is not bound by the FOI Act as it only applies to public bodies; though we do comply with the spirit of it when asked.)
We work to defend the right to FOI for everyone
