Total so far

The university’s 600th Anniversary fundraising campaign began in ‘quiet phase’ on 1 August 2008 and was formally and publicly launched by St Andrews alumnus Prince William on 25 February 2011. It will run until 31 July 2016.

The public launch by campaign Patron Prince William in February marked the anniversary of the formal charter granted to the university by Bishop Henry Wardlaw in February 1411.

Since August 2008, the campaign has realised a total of £47.9 million in gifts and pledges. More than £35.4 million has already been invested in key developments, including the new Medical and Biological Sciences Building, together with scholarships, research and teaching.

In total, our 600th Anniversary campaign aims to secure £100 million to support a range of projects and aspirational new developments integral to the university’s ambition to consolidate its status as a world-class centre for teaching and research.
