The University of St Andrews has beaten both the University of Oxford and University of Cambridge to first place in the Guardian University Guide 2023.
It is the first time that the leading Scottish university has finished top of the Guardian Guide. It had previously finished 1st in the Times Good University Guide 2022 and marks the second time in two years that St Andrews has finished ahead of their Oxbridge rivals.
Professor Dame Sally Mapstone, Principal and Vice-Chancellor, said: “I hope that St Andrews’ terrific students and all of my hard-working colleagues will feel the recognition of this very significant achievement. They entirely deserve it.
“The amalgam of our strengths in the key areas which The Guardian measures has set us narrowly ahead of some of the very best universities in the world.”
I believe my success is due to the great support provided by SI-UK. I was advised the right IELTS courses to attend and they also helped with my visa application. I really want to share with you my positive experience and I would definitely recommend SI-UK to my friends.
