Times Higher - QS World University Rankings 2007

08 November 2007

Commenting on the Times Higher-QS World University Rankings 2007, Dr Wendy Piatt, Director General of The Russell Group, said:

"While we continue to have concerns about the use of many league tables and their accuracy, we are pleased that this table reflects the real strength and global impact of the UK's major research intensive universities particularly in The Russell Group both in research and teaching. This success is good news for the UK as research-intensive universities are vital to promoting economic prosperity and improving quality of life in this country.

"But we are not complacent. We recognise that our universities must continue to rise to the challenges of increasing global competition and increasing investment by other countries in their universities, if we are retain our status as truly world-class institutions."
