Top Ten universities with the best student-to-staff ratio
A university's 'student-to-staff' (SSR) ratio is a measure of the staffing levels at the University in relation to how many students it has. This forms just one of the measures that
The Complete University Guide uses to compile its university league tables, and is calculated using HESA (Higher Education Statistics Agency) data.
It's an important measure - while there's no guarantee that additional staff will be any better at teaching, generally speaking the more academics that a university employs, the closer students will be watched and the more value they'll get out of their degree.
The ratio is calculated, broadly, by dividing the number of students by the number of staff, but in a way designed to take account of different patterns of staff employment in different universities. Again, the results were adjusted for subject mix.
So, if you're having trouble deciding on a university, why not have a think about it from the SSR angle? To give you a hand, we've teamed up with The Complete University Guide to show you the top ten universities in Britain with the best SSR. Have a look - you might be surprised at the results.
