Oxford tops University league tables

first_imgOxford has come top of a list of UK universities in an annual study carried out byThe Guardian and Campus Pi, an applied research department at Brunel University.This is the first time that the study includes a comprehensive list of fees, bursaries and scholarships on offer in universities, included in anticipation of the introduction of tuition fees in 2006. As well as these it assesses the teaching quality, staff to student ratios, graduate job opportunities, entry requirements and ‘value added’ to students. It also takes into account prospects for students from ethnic minorities and with disabilities.Oxford received 84.08 out of a possible 100 marks, compared to Cambridge’s score of 83.10.The Guardian also published lists to show which universities are best for certain subjects. Here, as in the general study, Oxbridge and the London universities took a prominent position.An Oxford spokesperson commented, “[The University’s] position at the top ofThe Guardian’s ranking is a tribute to the high standard, hard work and powerful performance of staff and students across the University and Colleges.”Top Five Ranking Universities |1|Oxford|2|Cambridge|3|Imperial College|4|School of Oriental and African Studies|5|London School of EconomicsARCHIVE: 0th week TT 2005last_img read more

Serving members at the center of the COVID storm

first_img continue reading » Though much of the New York metropolitan area is shut down by its status as the current U.S. epicenter of the COVID-19 pandemic, CUES member Thomas J. Powers, Jr. still goes into the office every other day, leading the “A team” of five employees of Hudson River Financial Federal Credit Union.The credit union divided its 10-member staff into two teams. Each reports to the credit union’s sole office on alternating days so employees can spread out and observe social distancing guidelines, explains Powers, president/CEO of the $70 million Mohegan Lake, New York, financial cooperative serving 7,000 members. The CFO leads the “B team.”“Everybody has enough training so that each day they came in, they could run the credit union,” Powers says. “They’re doing very well. Nobody’s gone down. Nobody has called in and said, ‘We don’t want to come in.’” ShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblrlast_img read more
