The University of St Andrews has been ranked top in Scotland in an independent guide, it has announced.

And the Fife-based institution – Scotland’s oldest university – said it came fifth overall in the UK, making it the only university north of the Border in the UK top 10.

University acting principal and vice-chancellor Professor Garry Taylor said: “The fact that St Andrews has retained its fifth place in the UK and top in Scotland is testament to the commitment of all my colleagues in the university who work tirelessly to ensure that the unique St Andrews student experience is not only maintained, but enhanced year on year.”
