Cold weather

I began my degree at St. Andrews in 1999. Whenever I told anyone where I was studying I would be met with a quizzically furrowed brow and a blank expression. Two years later the Prince William Factor transformed it into one of the most famous universities in Britain. However, St. Andrews has long...

“St Andrews rules”

published 05/05/2001

Excellant departments, friendly

Can get claustrophobic

I'm a second year student at St Andrews at the minute so you could say I know what I'm talking about. St Andrews is a great university, its small and everyone is really friendly. St Andrews is very multi-cultural so where ever you're from its easy to fit in. If you're interested St Andrews has...

Well, I have just graduated from St Andrews, (2 days ago – it was fantastic!) and so I decided to rewrite my originally very short and almost churner-style opinion about the university where I have just spent my last four years, and hope to spend a further few years! (My willingness to stay...

“gaudeamus igitur”

published 26/07/2000

Personal, intimate

Too intimate on occasions

St Andrews is often touted as being a provincial backwater version of Oxbridge. Indeed the transport links are undeniably not the best, as to get to St Andrews can be an ordeal, with Leuchars, the nearest station being five miles away. This should not however deter people from coming, however the...

At a time when the government is trying to promote "access for all" in higher education St Andrews insists on offering places to their traditional students. Mainly English students from "well-heeled" homes. As Scotlands oldest university this is very sad. Where are the locals? most universities...

Loads - but principally the great support network

small, full of "rich kids" so take your pashmina's

I ended up at St Andrews thanks to clearing - a very unpleasant and soul destroying procedure. I had originally written it off my list of places to go as it is so remote and small. The town has 3 main streets. There are plenty of pubs, no clubs and about 3 clothes shops that anyone of usual...

Size, location, facilities

Poor transport links

St. Andrews is a great university, the teaching is top grade and facilities generally excellent, especially in sciences. Student accomodation is plentiful and (compared to elsewhere) good, there are pubs aplenty and you are right next to a world-famous golf course and one of the most beautiful...

The weather, small place

I studied in St Andrews and would certainly strongly recommend it. The standard of teaching is generally very high and it is very highly regarded amongst employers. St Andrews regularly comes out tops in survey on how many students get good jobs shortly after graduation. Teaching is strong with a...

Chance to learn with some of Scotland's best!

Need for a bigger training facility

After only running for the last three years the Boxing team has gone from strength to strength. Initially the team was suspended in 1977 due to a severe competition accident, but it rebirth has proved very popular. In the last three years there have been as many as six national champions and 4...

Having graduated from St Andrews 9 years ago now, I still look back with fond memories of the place. Not only is the standard of teaching excellent, but the whole atmosphere of the small scottish town is a joy. Plentiful accommodation for students, fresh sea air and beautiful countryside. It's...
