SUMS was commissioned by HEPI to undertake a Comparative Study of Higher Education Academic Staff Terms and Conditions. We completed a review of published data available in, and of, the UK. The review was carried out objectively and the results are presented with no position by the SUMS Group.

This data, as with any benchmarking, is not an end in itself, but instead signposts the sector to areas that may require deeper investigation. Indeed, performing well comparatively does not mean that there is not room for improvement or new thinking.

‘Further enquiries regarding the outcomes of the study and its positioning should be referred to Nick Hillman at HEPI / 07730 718247.’
