Universities Wales

​Universities Wales is the national council of Universities UK in Wales.

Its members are the heads of all universities in Wales. Universities Wales represents the collective interests of Welsh universities to the National Assembly for Wales, the UK parliament, political parties, and European institutions and bodies.

Responsibility for higher education in Wales is devolved to the National Assembly, although the UK parliament and government retain significant powers and influence, for example over research council funding. In such matters, Universities Wales works closely with Universities UK.
