At University Alliance, just like our universities, our approach is about putting solutions, innovation and enterprise at the core of everything we do – for the wider public and economic benefit of the UK.

We conduct, promote and disseminate research and analysis into matters related to higher education, including higher education policy, to inform and improve public and political discourse about the value of universities and the public benefit they deliver.

In taking a non-partisan, non-political approach we are able to bring together thought-leaders and experts from across the sector as well as government, industry and other charities to identify solutions that will sustain a world-leading, enterprising and innovative higher education sector.
