HISTORY: St Andrews can trace its history back to 1410 when a group of masters initiated a school of higher studies in St Andrews. As such it is the oldest university in Scotland. By the middle of the 16th century, St Andrews had grown to encompass three colleges – St Salvator’s (1450), St Leonard’s (1511) and St Mary’s (1538). In the 19th century the University developed teaching and research in the Arts, Divinity and the Biological and Physical Sciences. In 1897 the University was joined by a new academic centre in nearby Dundee and developed Medical and Applied Science courses. This association ended in 1967 with the foundation of a separate University of Dundee.
