Which universities would you consider to be reputable/highly regarded that aren’t in the Russell Group, some that spring to mind are St Andrews, Bath and maybe Lancaster. Anymore?

You could consider some abroad that do teaching in the English language. There have been a number of threads about universities in the Netherlands, for example.

Yes those 3 plus Loughborough.

The question is highly subjective though

I'm probably biased but UEA is great and not enough people consider it honestly! It's at the top of student satisfaction rates and I can confirm that because I love it I always tell applicants to never focus completely on league tables and Russell groups because if you're not happy there then there's no point in paying £9000 a year to be sad!

I'm guessing it depends on the degree or course. RVC is 2nd for veterinary medicine in the world in 2020 and has been first before, but its not a russell group uni

Depends on what you want to study. For engineering, Strathclyde and Heriot-Watt are very reputable and targeted by recruiters pretty heavily (or have been in the past anyway). For art history, the Courtauld is world leading and it's MA programme has produced a very large proportion of the current heads of major museums and galleries in the UK. Anglia Ruskin has a very well regarded illustration programme, while Bournemouth has one of the premier film production courses in the UK to my understanding.

Focus on what is specifically good for your field/sector, not some "general" sense of prestige. Employers in the relevant field will only know/care about the former, not the latter!

This cannot be emphasised enough. League tables/Russell Group are largely irrelevant when compared to uni reputation within your field of interest.
