What UK universities offer

UK universities offer top facilities, advanced teaching and study methods and a worldwide reputation for academic excellence. We look at the plus points below…

High rankings and prestige

The history of UK education is rich and respected around the world. This is reflected in the high standing of the UK’s top universities in the QS World University Rankings.

The UK’s most prestigious universities are also reflected by their membership of the Russell Group.

What is the Russell Group?

The Russell Group is an elite organisation of 24 UK universities committed to achieving excellence in research and teaching, and building strong links with industry. Russell Group universities are recognised for their very high completion rates and student satisfaction levels. Unsurprisingly, competition for places is always high!

According to the Guardian University Guide 2013, seven of the top ten ranked UK universities are members of the Russell Group.
