Climbing back up to third place, Scotland's St Andrews achieves the highest place for a non-Russell Group member in 2020's University League Table. The university also boasts the highest score for Student Satisfaction and nearly 90% of students gain a Good Honours.

St Andrews is known for its traditions, which includes wearing academic gowns to formal events. New students acquire academic 'parents', who they thank with a pound of raisins – although these days a bottle of wine is just as welcome!
