Method of calculation of staff numbers for university membership category

Given that universities have to submit a staff return officially to the Higher Education Statistics Agency (HESA) each year, we use these data to both save our members a task and to ensure that our charging structure is consistently applied. 2017/18 rates will be based on the latest available data which is for academic year 2015/16.  The staff definition we plan to use is as follows:

Academic Professional FTE with an open-ended or permanent contract (teaching only or teaching plus research) in cost centres: (115) General engineering, (116) Chemical engineering, (117) Mineral, metallurgy & materials engineering, (118) Civil engineering, (119) Electrical, electronic & computer engineering and (120) Mechanical, aero & production engineering.

If however, you have reason to believe that this method will result in incorrect calculation of your subscription banding, please contact us and we will discuss adjustment.
