Bournemouth University gained acclaim in a Times Higher Education article looking at the amount of time students spend with their course lecturers.
The article looked at the average amount of time lecturers spent with their students and the average student per lecturer, with BU given full marks for its teaching approach.
The article is based on a study by Stephen Court from the University and College Union.
Jack Grove writes in the article, ‘At Bournemouth University, where there were 23.6 students per teaching academic, staff devoted 56 per cent of their time to teaching.’
This figure is higher than a number of other universities in the UK.
