The University of St. Andrews is credited with being the first university founded in Scotland in 1413. The University of St. Andrews has a reputation for exemplary scientific research, academic excellence and currently is in the process of building a new School of Medicine in the center of the Science Center. The objective is to create a synergistic atmosphere for scientific inquiry, physician training and scientific research. The university is divided into four faculties; Arts, Divinity, Medicine and Science. St. Andrews confers bachelor, master and doctoral degrees as well as medical and combined medical/science degrees.
