2019/20 data in this release relate to details about staff employed on 1 December 2019 (with the exception of academic atypical staff). This precedes the declaration by the World Health Organisation of the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic in March 2020. The data was collected from HE providers in Autumn 2020, during the pandemic.
The tables on this page break down staff numbers by cost centre (see full definition). Cost centres are an accounting concept used as a proxy for academic departments. All HE providers arrange their academic schools, faculties and departments differently. HESA cost centres are designed to be as comparable as possible between different providers.
Cost centre, sex and nationality
Full-time equivalent (FTE) indicates the proportion of a full-time year being undertaken over the course of the academic year 1 August to 31 July. This is different from the Full-person equivalent (FTE) tables above which count staff employed on a snapshot date of 1 December.
