So, which Russell Group uni is the stingiest?

Where exactly is my nine grand going?

Have you ever felt like your uni’s being a bit… stingy? You know – when your lecture halls are so crammed you can only get a seat on the floor, your uni accommodation is literally falling to pieces and a seat in the library is harder to come by than a Coachella ticket? Yeah, same.

Well, what are they actually spending on you?

The Guardian’s 2022 university rankings have created a crucial new category – scoring unis out of 10 for spending per student. In other words – how much of your nine grand is actually being spent on you.

It turns out that Exeter, Sheffield and Queen’s University Belfast are spending the least on their students.

Meanwhile, Oxford and Cambridge are treating anyone who bags a spot at their uni like pure royalty.

We’ve done the work and have broken down all of the data for the prestigious Russell Group unis to find out exactly who’s splashing the cash and who’s pinching pennies.
