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 2018, four of the top ten universities in the world - OxfordCambridgeImperial and UCL - are Russell Group members.

What is the purpose of the Russell Group?

Between them, 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 students and academics are attracted to study at 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.

From a students perspective, there are better employability and student satisfaction rates, as well there being a higher staff to student ratio.

Studying in the UK

My counsellor contacted me every day throughout the application process and helped me receive an unconditional offer. I am so grateful to SI-UK and will never forget them. I will study very hard as I feel this is the best reward I can give the whole team.
