Statistical Report: Academic Physics Staff in UK Higher Education Institutions

This report presents an overview of academic physics staff in UK higher education institutions (HEIs) and a number of selected other cost centres.

The data source for the report is the Higher Education Statistics Agency (HESA). HESA is the central source for the collection and dissemination of statistics about publicly funded UK higher education.
