What University Has the Highest Enrollment?

In June The Times released The Good University Guide 2009 which ranks the top Universities in the UK on such factors as student satisfaction, research quality, and the ratio between students and staff. Although many elements must be taken into account when deciding which institution to apply for, it occurred to me that one of the most popular questions asked online concerns simply the number of students enrolling at our universities. The following discusses a selection of the listed universities in regards to their Times rankings, as well as the number of students enrolling.

Imperial College London. The highest ranking of the big city colleges, The Imperial College of Science, Technology and Medicine has held its spot at number three for another year in The Times rankings. Founded just over a hundred years ago, as the college turned a century there were 13,410 students in total with 5,060 studying at postgraduate level. The institution is located in South Kensington and the current acceptance rate of undergraduate admissions is 17.5 per cent.

University of Birmingham. In terms of the second most highly populated city in England, The University of Birmingham currently ranks the highest according to The Times at number 25. In comparison to Imperial the student staff ratio is lower but the intake of students is far greater. In the year 06/07 the total amount of students was 30,415 with 11,935 taking postgraduate studies. As of 2008, the institution has now split into five colleges, each with its own specialism.

University of Essex. So to find the better student to staff ratio should you choose to enroll at a smaller university? The up and coming University of Essex follows this rule with a ratio of 14.1 students per staff member. The Higher Education Statistic Agency published that for 2006 – 2007 there were 11,660 students in total with 3,305 postgraduates enrolled. Although a relatively young university, the institution is also becoming highly regarded in terms of online education.

University of Oxford. The highest ranking according to The Times, the University of Oxford remains at number one for another year. This honour comes from a combination of a good student to staff ratio of 11.6 and a very high satisfaction percentage among students at 84 per cent. From 2006 to 2007 there were 19,070 students in total with over a third being postgraduates. Acceptance of students from state schools in 2006 was 25 per cent.

Why Choose Removal Services in Essex

Essex, the oldest county of England, attracts hundreds of people every day with its beautiful landscapes and closeness to London. All those looking to be near the capital and yet far enough from the noise and pollution choose to make this county their home. Many people actually come from London, searching for more affordable homes and a better place to raise their children. However, they continue to work in the big city and come to their home in Essex each night. No matter where in this county one may decide to move, be it in Chelmsford, the county town or anywhere else, moving is a very stressful time. This is why most people decide to hire removals in Essex, because a professional company can take care of everything for them and allow them to take as little time off from work as possible.

Many people choose to move in Colchester, because this is where the University of Essex is located and they want to offer their children as many options as possible when it comes to their education. Regardless of where in this county a person might want to move, they would still have to pack everything and arrange transportation. Not to mention that their former home would have to be cleaned. So moving can take a few days and those who have demanding jobs may not always afford to take as much time off. This is why house removals in Essex have become so popular over time. The removal company can provide its clients with everything they need to complete this task successfully. From packing materials to transportation and cleaning services, everything can be much easier for those who decide to hire removal services.

Of course, one may say that these services can be too expensive, but when you choose to move to a gorgeous area near the 7th century Saxon church of St Peter-on-the-Wall in Brandwell-on-Sea, hiring a removal company should not be a problem. They will make sure you have everything you need to pack your things properly and even offer you a hand with packing if you feel you have too many things. These companies can send to your home as many men as you need to complete the moving as soon as possible. You can ask for a man and a van or you can have three men coming to your home to move all your furniture and other belongings safely from one place to another.

To conclude, removals in Essex can really save a person a lot of time and effort. Nobody needs to stress about moving when they can hire a professional to help them every step of the way and take care of everything they need. Many landlords ask their tenants to leave the house clean when they leave in order to receive their deposits. But in the hurry to move, making time to clean a home properly can be very difficult. Fortunately, removal services often come with this option and offer their clients the chance to breathe easy knowing that there is someone experienced to handle everything for them.
