University of St Andrews
8.0 / 10 Overall Satisfaction
(based on 40 ratings in 2018)
In a few words
"There are numerous pubs and two clubs (if you can call them that) but you can still have a great time if you want to enjoy a night out. There are always plenty of balls throughout the semester, which are the equivalent of a big night out in a city uni."
