Going to St. Andrews is one of the best choices I ever made. I've loved my time here so far. The town is small and has really nice community feel with virtually everyone you see either being a student, a university employee or a golfer. Obviously with it being such a small town this does impact the nightlife. Having said this there are still at least 3 decent nights out a week but don't be expecting Ministry of Sound nights out. However, in the absence of 7 nights out a week, the students here make their own nights, with house parties and pub crawls a regular feature of the social life here. It is also a university steeped in tradition which you can get involved in to whatever level you want but I would suggest you try and get involved as much as possible. On the whole St. Andrews is a fantastic small town university, the balance between work and life, in my eyes, makes it the best small town university in the UK.

An excellent university. Great academics from all over the world produce great research and offer focused individual attention to students. The town of St Andrews is just a perfect place for studying, with little distraction and an outstandingly high quality of life.

Excellent education at St Andrews. You are pushed mentally by all the lecturers and modules. It is great that there are so many joint degrees so you can mix your two favourite majors.

St. Andrews is a great university in part because of its location and in part because of its functioning. The lecturers are good, though lectures tend to be rather simple, and not very academically challenging. Tutorials sometimes are very useful and sometimes seem pointless, but they are ALWAYS fun. The location is beautiful and the town is a nice mix of necessity stores and cute cafes/ tourist shops. In order to get a well rounded and satisfactory education at St. Andrews you will have to be able to do work that is not required of you and to work independently.

A great university with excellent teaching. Also has a good network system for different career choices too as the lecturers and professors are all experts in their field and welcome students for placements and projects.

St Andrews itself is a beautiful town to live in, the beach, the sea, the incredible historic monuments and of course the famous golf course all help to make St Andrews an incredible place to live! The courses I have taken so far have been challenging occasionally but always engaging and interesting. I would recommend St Andrews to any student who wishes to work hard, push themselves and deepen their passion for learning.

Teachers take time and care about every student. The level of teaching is very high! I also enjoy the fact that the town is very small and easy to get everywhere.

The University is spread around the town which is beautiful and very quaint. It is a small town and quite insular but international at the same time. I study Arabic, German and English. I find the lectures useful at times but they can be a bit irrelevant.

The university is well situated with good travel connections despite its remote location. It’s teaching quality is superb, it’s staff helpful and class sizes very small allowing excellent interaction. The module choices are varied enabling an array of topics to be covered.

Everything is really close walking distance, with a friendly and close-knit atmosphere. The course variety and flexibility is amazing, with lots of different modules to choose from regardless of chosen degree path. The student union is great, with a variety of events and opportunities each week.

The sense of community in this town is exceptional. The density of student-run activities and attractive architecture is unparalleled, and the approachability of my lecturers is high.

Great staff and community. The interconnectedness of the student body ads to the sense of community withing this relatively small seaport University town. Most tutors and lectures are fairly good if you make the effort to attend. Highly enjoyable experience in most areas overalll. Rate 8/10 on yelp , b/c lack of humus in hall food.

Lovely campus which is based in the town hi the seaside and St. Andrews golf courses.Lots of student support on the course. Sport facilities are good with many different teams and societies to join for all abilities. Student union is good but drinks are quite pricy.

Student accommodation clean and secure, always someone around if you have problems. Great campus, everything within walking distance and allows time to get to each class. Very well trained academic staff in the geography department, willing to help with any of your queries and very quick response time. Good provision of field classes to gain real life experience of working in the field. A great range of topics covered to develop interest in wider areas. A range of activities provided in the curriculum, allowing you to develop many skills for your career ahead. Good disability department, provides extra help when needed and never judgemental. Very fair marking and great feedback on coursework. Overall good uni experience.

The town is beautiful, the staff are adorable and do a lot to make sure you are feeling okay with your work. The nightlife isn’t like any other, if you’re looking to stay out until 6am you’ll have trouble in the town where everything closes at 2am.

Small town with lots of friendly students- not a great deal to occupy your time with other than studies and good pubs.

Lovely place to study. The libraries are full of rare documents, very complete. There are various accommodations so adapted to everyone. The surrounding is full of surprises (landscape...). The student union is amazingly big, we can easily find a suitable society !

The University has excellent facilities, staff and is situated in a great town. The town is small, as is the University. This is good as you don't get lost in the crowd. There are plenty of societies to make friends and overall its a great place to be. It has a world renowned reputation being one of the oldest universities in the world. As a result, the research ongoing here is also world class. There is a varied life in town driven by a very varied student body, with alot of international students helping make St Andrews special.
