University ranked among top UK universities

Thursday 20 May 2010

The University of St Andrews is named among the UK’s top universities in a new university guide published today.

The Complete University Guide 2011, published online and in the Independent newspaper, ranks St Andrews as the leading university in Scotland and 6th in the UK.

Universities were rated on student satisfaction, quality of research, staff-student ratio, completion rates, and spend per student on services and facilities.

The guide also looked at entry standards, the percentage of students gaining good honours and graduate prospects.

St Andrews ranks amongst the top in the UK for student satisfaction, research quality, completion rates and good honours results for students.

Principal and Vice-Chancellor Dr Louise Richardson said, “We are very pleased by this result. It reflects the dedication, engagement and commitment to excellence of everyone who works and studies at St Andrews.

“We are also very proud that as a relatively small Scottish university we have been able to sustain such a strong performance at the highest level of UK higher education.”
