With 0.6 students for every staff member, Tokyo’s Jikei University School of Medicine topped the list of the top 101 colleges and universities in the world with the best “student-to-staff” (SSR) ratio, according to the Times Higher Education for 2018.

Meanwhile, Oregon Health & Science University ranked No. 2 with 1.0 students for every staff member, followed by Kansai Medical University, Saitama Medical University, and Rush University’s Medical Center in Chicago.

With 2.4 students for every staff member, Showa University in Japan tied with the University of Nebraska Medical Center in the United States for the No. 6 spot.

So, what’s a good “student-to-staff” (SSR) ratio for a College?

In general, the lower the student-to-staff ratio, the better. The research shows that Japan dominated the list with 34 universities featured in top 101. The United States comes in second with 25 universities.

The rest of the top 100 features universities from Russia, China, Italy, France, India, Austria, Denmark, Sweden, Saudi Arabia, Bangladesh, Brazil, Iran, Norway, New Zealand, Oman, Pakistan, Switzerland, Taiwan, Ukraine, and the United Arab Emirates.

Surprisingly, universities based in Australia, Canada, and the united kingdom are absent from the list.
