The University of Oxford is a complex and stimulating organisation, which enjoys an international reputation as a world-class centre of excellence in research and teaching. It employs over 10,000 staff and has a student population of over 21,000. The University, including the colleges and Oxford University Press, is the largest employer in Oxford and the second largest in Oxfordshire, injecting £750 million annually into the regional economy.

Most staff are directly appointed and managed by one of the University’s 130 departments or other units within a highly devolved operational structure - this includes 5,900 ‘academic-related’ staff (postgraduate research, computing, senior library, and administrative staff) and 2,820 ‘support’ staff (including clerical, library, technical, and manual staff).

There are also over 1,600 academic staff (professors, readers, lecturers), whose appointments are in the main overseen by a combination of broader divisional and local faculty board/departmental structures. Academics are generally all also employed by one of the 38 constituent colleges of the University as well as by the central University itself.

In 2010-11, total University income was £919.6m. Oxford is one of Europe's most innovative and entrepreneurial universities: income from external research grants and contracts. In 2010-11 41% (£376.7m) of total income was derived from external research sponsors, and more than 60 spin-off companies have been created.
