University of St Andrews: St Andrews named top university in Scotland, second in the UK and Scottish University of the Year 2023


The University of St Andrews is the top university in Scotland and 2nd in the UK in The Times and Sunday Times Good University Guide 2023 published today (Friday 16 September).

The University has also been named as the Scottish University of the Year.

Last year St Andrews was ranked number one in the UK, the first time in the near 30-year history of the Guide, or any UK ranking, that any university has been placed above those of Oxford and Cambridge.

Principal and Vice-Chancellor Dame Sally Mapstone FRSE said: “This is another very welcome endorsement of the quality of research-led teaching at St Andrews, and the hard work of all our staff and students, but they would be the first to say that this is not the week for celebration.

“We will in due course be marking this achievement with all in our community.”
