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.

"Loughborough University"

7. Loughborough University

Loughborough University is known for its sporting excellence but recent performances in the main UK University League Table and subject tables show that it has a lot to offer in multiple academic areas. This year, it ranks seventh out of non-Russell Group universities for Student-Staff Ratio. In addition, all undergraduate courses offer the option to include a year in industry as part of the degree.
