St Andrews University

The University of St Andrews, the oldest in Scotland, dates back to 1410.A charter for the university was issued by Bishop Henry Wardlaw between 1411 and 1412. This was followed by Avignon Pope Benedict XIII granting university status to award degrees to students in 1413.The school initially started out as a society for learned men in the fields of canon law, the arts and divinity. The chapel and college of St John the Evangelist became the first building to have ties with the university in 1415.The two original colleges to be associated with the university were St Salvator in 1450 by Bishop James Kennedy and St Leonard in 1512 by archbishop Alexander Stewart and prior James Hepburn.


The major consideration for all students is finding affordable accomodation in a town where during term time the population is increased by 50% and securing a house is competitive and adding your name to our waiting list is recommended.
