*The data above includes Year 1 new students only. The database does not state whether continuing students are in their first year of student finance registration as this information is stored in individual student files and it would take in excess of 12.5 hours to locate, retrieve and extract the information.
**Post Graduate numbers were not identified on the database prior to the academic year 2018 /2019. This information is also stored in individual student files and it would take in excess of 12.5 hours to locate, retrieve and extract the information.
Article 16 A scheduled public authority may refuse to supply information if cost excessive
(1) A scheduled public authority that has been requested to supply information may refuse to supply the information if it estimates that the cost of doing so would exceed an amount determined in the manner prescribed by Regulations.
Regulation 2 (1) of the Freedom of Information (Costs) (Jersey) Regulations 2014 allows an authority to refuse a request for information where the estimated cost of dealing with the request would exceed the specified amount of the cost limit of £500. This is the estimated cost of one person spending 12.5 working hours in determining whether the department holds the information, locating, retrieving and extracting the information.
