It is a source of pride that we’re one of the most sought-after student destinations in the world.
We set highly challenging entry grades and we award, on average, one place for every 11 applicants. But if we want the most able students, we must be able to attract them irrespective of their ability to afford fees, accommodation and living expenses.
The obvious solution lies in an endowment that would give us the flexibility to offer a St Andrews education to anyone we consider deserving of it. By providing advanced level learning to those who might otherwise be denied it, we not only benefit St Andrews but also world knowledge and understanding.
During the course of the Anniversary Campaign so far, we have invested over £7 million of money raised in scholarships.
