Aussies Rule

Australian FlagAcademics working in UK have the highest pay scales compared to colleagues in other Commonwealth countries, but British academics drop to third place when a cost of living factor is applied to income, and their place at the top is taken by Australian academics.
The average academic pay scale for Australia was USD $80,859 (£40,729), when PPP (purchasing power parity) was applied. This compared to an average of USD $63,735 (£32,000) in the UK which was just behind the average of USD $63,969 (£32,197) from Canada.
Jay Rubler, the educational researcher who helped compile the report, said the findings suggest that if UK academics wanted a better standard of living they should move to Australia where their pay would go further.
