Our University set to have highest student:staff ratios in the country of leading Universities

November 13, 2009

(For Times Higher Ed story, click here.) A national UCU press release today points out that the University of Leeds will have the highest ratio of students to staff of the UK’s leading universities if it pushes ahead with plans to make £35m worth of cuts and axe 10% of its academic staff, according to new figures released this morning. For the full story, go here. A member of LUU has been asked for a response, which will be published here upon receipt. A comment left yesterday on the Yorkshire post online stated that “students and the country will be the losers if standards of excellence are weakened by blinkered thinking.” Click here for that comment.SSRs
