St Andrews has cemented its lead as the best university in the country, pulling further away from Oxford and Cambridge in the latest Guardian University Guide.
The Fife university came top of the table for the first time in 2022, after knocking Oxford off the second spot in 2019. This year, the gap between first place and Oxford and Cambridge in second and third place respectively has widened, while St Andrews has claimed top spot in nine of the individual subject rankings, more than ever before.
