The Russell Group represents 24 leading UK universities which are committed to maintaining the very best research, an outstanding teaching and learning experience and unrivalled links with business and the public sector.
The heads of the Russell Group universities first began to meet in 1994. Set up as a professional, incorporated organisation in 2007, the Russell Group provides strategy, policy development, intelligence, communications and advocacy for its member institutions.
Russell Group universities attract students and staff from around the world and work with major multinational businesses and international organisations: 39 percent of academic staff and 34 percent of students are of non-UK nationality.
