The Russell Group represents 24 leading UK universities
What is Russell group of Universities?
A group of 24 leading universities in the UK have come together and formed an association which represents common interests and collaboration for education and research.
The group is headquartered in London and was established in 1994 to represent its members’ interests, principally to government and parliament.
The origins of the Russell Group go back to 1994, with 17 original members setting out to ensure that their interests were represented to government. The heads of these universities would meet informally in the Hotel Russell in London, which is where the name came from.
New universities have been added along the way, with the group becoming an official, incorporated organisation in 2007.
The Russell Group currently has twenty-four members, of which twenty are from England, two from Scotland, and one from each of Wales and Northern Ireland
