Top Ten Universities with the Best Student-Staff Ratio (non-Russell Group) 2020

The more staff a university has in relation to its students, the more likely it is that students will get an engaging learning experience. This countdown shows the universities with the best student to staff ratio.

Overall reputations and rankings aren’t all that students should consider when choosing a university, so this Top Ten excludes the Russell Group universities, highlighting strengths of universities that might otherwise be underrated.


6. University for the Creative Arts

Consistently in the middle of the top ten for Student-Staff Ratio, the University for the Creative Arts is a specialist arts institution with multiple campuses across the South East of England. Teaching staff are all active practitioners in their fields, and resources include the largest independent TV studio facility in the UK, and a dedicated hand embroidery studio at the Royal School of Needlework.
