Russell Group Universities

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.

The Russell Group was originally founded in 1994 and in 2020 four of the top ten universities in the QS World University Rankings - OxfordCambridgeImperial and UCL - were Russell Group members.

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.
