What is the Million+ Group?

The Million+ Group is a public policy think tank made up of universities, which focuses on research and shaping public policy. Look here to find out who's a member...

What the Million+ Group says:

We are a university think-tank. This means we work to help solve complex problems in higher education and to ensure that policy reflects the potential of the UK's world-class university system.

Million+ is at the forefront of the political debate about the role and contribution of universities to the economy and society. We publish research reports and policy papers and we submit evidence to parliamentarians, government and other agencies. Million+ Group Website

What other university groups are there?

The Million+ isn’t the only university group out there. The Russell Group and 1994 Group are both associated with research and are known for doing well in the university league tables.
 
There is also University Alliance, and Guild HE, which represents many universities and colleges specialising in art and design, teacher training, agriculture, music and drama.
 
Some universities choose not to be part of any group – and this shouldn’t be viewed negatively.
