University of St Andrews
Established between 1410 and 1413, St Andrews University is the oldest of the four ancient academic institutions of Scotland and the third oldest in the English-speaking world, after Oxford and Cambridge. Surrounded by sea, famous golf courses and the picture-perfect Scottish vernacular architecture of St Andrews in Fife, the campus comprises a flurry of historic and contemporary buildings. Built by Faulkner-Brown architects, the main library building boasts one of the most extensive collections in the UK, whereas the King James Library dates back to 1643. Two ancient collegiate chapels and a mix of Brutalist and Gothic revival architecture in the halls are just a couple of the many desirable traits.
