Dear Mr...,
 
I write further to your request for information dated 3 January 2019.  This request has been handled by the University in accordance with its duties and obligations under the Freedom of Information Act 2000 ("FOIA").

Please note these figures only relate to appeals. Complaints are not recorded centrally, as they are dealt with by individual Schools and informal complaints are not recorded. To locate this information would exceed the appropriate limit. Therefore, the element of your request relating to complaints is refused under s.12 FOIA.
