Number of over 60s attending university

Request 

Hello,
 
I would like to submit a Freedom of Information request of the following questions please for some research I am conducting into over 60s attending university:
 
1) How many people are currently studying at your university? 
2) How many of these are over 60? Could you please also break them down by age group if possible (60s, 70s, 80s, 90+)
3) What subject areas do you have students over 60 studying? 
 
I know that FOI requests take up to 20 working days but if there is any chance of receiving any information by the end of Wednesday 9th January it would be hugely appreciated. I understand if it is not possible but even if just one of these questions could be answered by then it would be a massive help.
 
Many thanks in advance,
 

Response
