• One of several letters in last Friday’s paper about Oxford University’s politics, philosophy and economics course (PPE: the Oxford degree with a lot to answer for, 24 February, page 28) said that the author, as a PPE tutor between 1975 and 2010, “escaped teaching any of the numerous teachers listed” in the article to which he was responding. That should have said “escaped teaching any of the numerous graduates listed”. The author of the letter had spotted his error and sent us a corrected version by email about 10 minutes after the first, but we failed to notice both that and the mistake itself until after the letter was published.

• In the heading on a review of The Tourist, an album by Clap Your Hands Say Yeah (24 February, page 23, G2), we said incorrectly that it was released on the Wichita label. In fact it was issued by Undertow.

• An article about Alternative für Deutschland (Far-right party loses support in Germany after rift over Nazis, 27 February, page 17) said it had formed only three years ago. It was founded early in 2013.
