The Group of Eight (Go8) is a coalition of research-intensive Australian universities.[1] The Go8 universities are some of the largest and the oldest universities in Australia.[2] Several Go8 universities, along with the University of Tasmania, are called the Sandstone or Brick universities.[3]

According to the Department of Education, Employment and Workplace Relations in 2008 the Group of Eight universities in Australia received almost double the research funding compared to the other 31 universities combined.[4]
