How many UK universities are there?

There are about 140 universities in the UK. It depends on your definition of a university: if it stretches to any public institution with degree-awarding powers, then the number rises to 164, according to Higher Education Statistics Agency (Hesa) data. A small number of private providers can also award degrees.
