## CLASSICS AT BRITISH UNIVERSITIES: STATISTICS

Geoffrey Eatough

KEY TO TABLES

C = Classics
G = Greek
AH = Ancient History
ARC = Archaeology
BG = Beginners' Greek
BL = Beginners' Latin
NC = Non Classical
TM = Taught Masters

The top figure in the columns or tables referring to students is the number of students irrespective of whether all their time, or only a proportion of their time is spent in Classics departments. The figure in brackets is the Full Time Equivalent (FTE); that is two students, each spending 50% of their time in Classics, equal one FTE Classics student, ten students spending 90% of their time in Classics equal nine FTE Classics students. The Staff/Student Ratio is reached by dividing the FTE figure for all students in Classics departments by the number of staff.

*It was considered that through a change of practice a substantial body of students were being miscategorised in the official statistics and an attempt was made over the years to calculate what could be considered the proper figure. It seems best on reflection to present the official figure, even if it is unfair, in its simplicity.
