The Academic Statistics Yearbook was first produced for the Council by the Strategic Planning and Analytics Office in 2008, as a succinct summary of metrics on the University’s performance.
The report presents data on students, human resources, the University estate, research, teaching, learning and resources and the University’s external impact and reputation. Throughout the report the University’s performance is benchmarked primarily against the Russell Group of Universities.
The Academic Statistics Yearbook is considered by the Steering Committee and thereafter the Council.
