Research-Intensive Learning

02 June 2017

In order to deliver the Government’s modern industrial strategy, a pool of high-level graduate skills is needed to feed into leading edge sectors and help drive innovation and productivity. These talented individuals need to be able to think critically, analyse and solve complex problems, and bring ideas and teams together – and crucially, they need to have the capability to adapt to a rapidly changing labour market.

The research-intensive learning environment at Russell Group universities enables students to become active participants in the production of knowledge rather than passive recipients. Students are supported to develop the personal and professional skills that are integral to graduate-level jobs, meaning they are better able to realise their ambitions and to contribute fully to our society and economy.
