What other university groups are there?UKADIA 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 Million+, University Alliance and GuildHE, 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.
