Our current priority projects.

Younger Hall

The Younger Hall is nearing its century and requires to be upgraded to keep it as a fitting space for the University’s key ceremonial events and for significant concerts. The refurbishment will also create greater flexibility throughout the building for teaching and social events and will include external and internal renovation of listed features and updated and improved facilities including disabled access, heating, soundproofing and acoustics.

New College Madras


Throughout the history of St Andrews, the gifts and legacies the University has received have enabled us to establish the scholarships, awards and bursaries to support talented undergraduate and postgraduate students – regardless of their background and irrespective of their ability to afford fees, accommodation and living expenses.

There are many young people who can only dream of studying here because of their financial circumstances. That's why it is essential to provide funding for scholarships and bursaries every year.

Our Wardlaw Scholarship Programme for undergraduates was founded in 2003 to provide help with accommodation costs in St Andrews for our undergraduate students. These means-tested awards provide £3,000 for each year of study and enable students to live in St Andrews and participate in the University's vibrant student life. In addition, by offering postgraduate scholarships we can attract the brightest and best students from around the world to start their research careers here.

We also have the Handsel postgraduate programme which also provides invaluable support and can transform lives of talented students.
