Russell Group universities dominate the establishments that have delivered the most UK millionaires, regardless of whether they came through state or private school education, according to the latest research in Skandia’s Millionaire Monitor+ report.

Combining results from two waves of research (June 2011 and January 2012) with millionaires based in Britain, eight of the top ten universities are in the Russell Group, with just the University of St Andrews and Aston University from outside the group.

The University of London is ranked first, with almost one in 10 millionaires gaining a degree or higher from one of its colleges. Oxford is ranked second, significantly ahead of Cambridge in third. One in 13 attended Oxford, compared to one in 20 for Cambridge.

Top Ten Ranked by Attendance
1.       University of London
2.       University of Oxford
3.       University of Cambridge
4.       University of Leeds
5.       University of Manchester
6.       University of Edinburgh
6.       University of Birmingham
7.       University of St Andrews
8.       University of Glasgow
9.       Aston University
10.   University of Bristol
 
In terms of cities that deliver the most money earning potential, Birmingham is in top spot, with both the University of Birmingham (ranked 6th) and Aston University (ranked 9th) appearing in the top ten.

If the top ten are ranked in terms of millionaires who came through the state school system, the University of Bristol moves into first place, with nine out of 10 having been to state school. The University of Glasgow is second, with the University of Manchester in third place. The bottom four (allowing for joint places in ranking of top attended) in terms of state school attendance are Cambridge (8th place), Oxford (9th place), Aston University (10th place) and the University of St Andrews (11th place).

Top Ten Attended Ranked by State School Attendance
1.       University of Bristol
2.       University of Glasgow
3.       University of Manchester
4.       University of Birmingham
5.       University of Edinburgh
6.       University of London
7.       University of Manchester
8.       University of Cambridge
9.       University of Oxford
10.   Aston University
11.   University of St Andrews
 
Graham Bentley, Skandia UK’s head of investment strategy comments “Having a private school education seems to have been influential in gaining a place at the Oxbridge universities according to this research, with almost half of the millionaires who gained a degree from Oxford or Cambridge having attended private schools.

 
 “However, what’s really interesting is the overall number who have gained places at top universities from the state school system and then gone on to have successful careers that have enabled them to earn a fortune. With so much focus on the cost of getting a degree, it’s worth noting that having a degree can be a valuable tool in achieving financial success.”
