Almost all British universities have charitable status because their primary purposes of advancing education and research are deemed to deliver a public benefit. This means the University can reclaim Gift Aid on donations, increasing their value by 25%, and that corporation tax does not have to be paid on profits made from research with a social impact.

Our tax-exempt Inland Revenues charities reference number is X7237.
