Russell Group Universities

What is the Russell Group?

The Russell Group comprises 24 research-intensive UK universities with shared commitment and focus towards research and providing an outstanding teaching and learning experience.

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 - are 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 the 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.

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’s perspective, Russell Group universities have better employability and student satisfaction rates, as well as a higher student-staff ratio.

Studying in the UK

 I sincerely thank SI-UK for getting me accepted to UCL. The MSc in Urban Development and Planning is extremely competitive, but the right guidance provided by SI-UK made my dream of studying at University College London a reality. The services were exceptional from beginning to end.
