    There a group of Universities established in the UK that get funding from the government of research. They're better known internationally but that doesn't necessarily mean they are better for your course than other Universities.

    Practically all universities get funding from the government for research so the RG is not that.

    They are just basically a group of friendly universities who wish to work with each other.
