The Russell Group represents 24 leading UK universities which are committed to maintaining an outstanding teaching and learning experience and world-leading research. Our universities teach a quarter of all undergraduates and four out of five doctors, and support over 250,000 jobs across the UK. We welcome the opportunity to respond to this important consultation launched by the Department for Education (DfE) to establish a suitable model for a post-qualifications admissions (PQA) system.
