Scotland’s universities: 14 Scottish universities ranked best to worst - including Edinburgh University

The Times and The Sunday Times Good University Guide 2023 was published earlier this year – and it ranks 14 of Scotland's universities from best to worst.

The University of St Andrews took the number one spot in Scotland in a national league table.

It was placed second in the UK-wide version of the table, slipping from first place last year as Oxford took back that position, with Cambridge still in third place.

The guide provided rankings for UK universities using data published in the previous two months, and an overview of higher education in Britain.

It includes profiles on 135 universities.

Take a look through our photo gallery to see Scottish version of the league table, ranking the country’s 14 universities from best to worst.
