For business

Russell Group universities work extensively with businesses of all sizes, in their local regions, elsewhere in the UK and right around the world, in many different ways.


Businesses can access the world-class research, expertise and facilities at our universities to raise their performance, productivity and competitiveness. 68% of the UK’s very best research took place in Russell Group universities according to the latest Government assessment and more than half of research in our universities was deemed to have had outstanding impact on business, the economy, health, society, culture and the environment. This is just one of the many reasons why so many businesses - from small, local firms to major multinationals - choose to work with academics at our universities.

For more information on how your business could benefit from working with a Russell Group university visit the Working with our researchers page.

Our graduates are also highly sought-after by businesses. They are of the highest calibre, highly-skilled and commercially aware and provide businesses of all sizes and sectors with the talented recruits they will need to meet today’s challenges and those of the future. Our universities offer employers the opportunity to advertise jobs and work placements to current students and recent graduates, and you’ll find more information on how to do this on the Recruiting our students and graduates page.
