Basic info about British universities
Today we’re sharing some basic information about British universities, collected by contributor Philip Rogerson and published for you here by the UniBox team, on behalf of the University of East Anglia.
This is an extremely useful resource that brings together student population figures for UK universities from the Higher Education Statistics Agency (HESA) with historical and geographical information about unis’ campuses and colleges, so you can get a flavour of their size and composition.
When looking at this downloadable resource, you should note that each university has its own style and atmosphere, to which various factors contribute, including:
- Location (or locations, in some multi-site universities)
- Courses offered (their range & type)
- Facilities (academic, accommodation & recreational)
- Teaching methods
- The people currently teaching & studying there
The following resource is designed to highlight some basic features of British universities. Although Philip (the curator of this resource) has divided the universities into groups by date of foundation and country, it is important to stress that there are significant differences in style and atmosphere between individual institutions within the same group.
In order to get the most out of a university visit, it is advisable that your students:
- Visit during the university’s term – but note the school’s policy on this
- Speak with current students – as they have the most up to date information
- Ask questions about the facilities and courses – as they are, at the moment.
