The University has one of the best first-year retention rates in Scotland for 2016-2017 entrants: around 97% of our students continue in their studies at St Andrews; less than 1% transfer to other universities, and less than 2% drop out of higher education altogether. The University of St Andrews secured a Gold Award in the 2017 Teaching Excellence Framework (TEF) based on the quality of teaching and the undergraduate experience. The TEF panel judged that St Andrews, "delivers consistently outstanding teaching, learning and outcomes for its students. It is of the highest quality found in the UK." The University was named UK University of the Year in The Times and Sunday Times Good University Guide 2020. It was also rated first in Scotland and second in the UK by the Guardian University Guide 2020.
The University offers alternative entry routes for applicants who come from areas where they receive limited applications and who are unable to obtain the required grades, or for those who are returning to education after an extended period of time.
