University of St Andrews: Tuition, Admissions, Rankings

United Kingdom » Scotland » St Andrews » University of St Andrews

The University of St Andrews, or St And for short, is the oldest of the four “ancient universities of Scotland,” while it is the third-oldest in the English-speaking world, following Oxford and Cambridge. Initially founded by an assembly of Augustinian clergy in 1410, Antipope Benedict XIII bestowed the school ‘university status’, due to Bishop Henry Wardlaw’s petition, on August 28, 1413. Since then, the University of St Andrews has been comprised of three different institutions: United College, St. Leonard’s College, and St. Mary’s College. St And has also been dubbed as “University of the Year” twice by The Times and Sunday Times, and the first university ever to surpass Cambridge and Oxford in British rankings after being ranked as the best university in the UK in the 2022 Good University Guide.
