Warwick Beats Ivory Towers Down List 

The University of Warwick has been ranked the most productive research university in the country in a table of performance indicators produced by the Higher Education Funding Councils.

The figures published in a league table by Research Fortnight magazine ranked Warwick first, a jump of three places from fourth last year.

Cambridge is ranked seventh, Oxford eighth and the next highest West Midlands university is Birmingham at 31 in the table.

The table ranks universities according to research grants and contracts awarded in relation to staff costs.

Warwick topped the table by attracting almost two and a half times the average amount of research funding relative to staff costs.

The table also notes Warwick’s success in attracting in a large number of PhD postgraduate students in relation to overall staff costs.

University spokesman Peter Dunn said:

“One of the ways the University of Warwick is able to operate in such an efficient manner is because it generates over 65 per cent of its own income from links with industry, meaning it relies much less on Funding Council support.”
