Russell Group Universities
What is the Russell Group?
The Russell Group is a collective of 24 research-intensive UK universities who have a shared commitment and focus to research and outstanding teaching and learning experiences.
What is the purpose of the Russell Group?
Russell Group universities receive two-thirds of all research grants, allowing them to make a huge contribution to intellectual, cultural and economic factors in the UK.
As a result of this, the very best academics are attracted to Russell Group institutions. By producing world-leading research across a range of topics and disciplines, Russell Group universities play a major role in the UK and the health of its economy. Following the most recent Research Excellence Framework, Russell Group universities produced 68% of the UK’s ‘world-leading’ research, and 68% of the country’s research with an ‘outstanding impact’.
From an international student perspective, Russell Group universities have better employability and student satisfaction rates, as well as a higher staff to student ratio.
