The University of St Andrews has been ranked the top university in Scotland for the second year running.
Situated in Fife, the uni sits at number two overall in The Times and Sunday Times Good University Guide 2023, published on Friday.
It is down one place from last year, when the university was ranked the top university in the United Kingdom for the first time.
It was the first time in the near 30-year history of the definitive Guide, and UK university league tables in general, that a university other than Oxford or Cambridge topped the rankings.
Oxford University was placed top of the rankings for 2023.
Founded in 1413, St Andrews is the oldest university in Scotland and the third oldest in the English speaking world and has consistently been in the top three of The Times and Sunday Times Guide in recent years.
It took first place in Scotland this year by virtue of its strong performances in student satisfaction, research, teaching quality, entry standards and graduate outcomes.
Research found that 87% of graduates from the university go into high-skilled jobs, or go onto further study.
