In the latest Guardian university ranking the School of History at St Andrews came first, together with History at Cambridge. The School of History at St Andrews is among the highest scoring history department in terms of Student Satisfaction as well as Employability.
Student satisfaction is linked to an excellent student-staff ratio in the School of History that allows staff to teach in small classes across the entire degree.
History’s Director of Teaching, Bernhard Struck, remarked that the ranking would not have been achieved without exceptional effort by St Andrews History staff. “Thank you very much to all colleagues who have put a lot of work, energy and creativity into teaching, feedback and the learning experience at the School of History. We will certainly aspire to remain at the very top end of the rankings by working hard with and for our students. This ranking is a great achievement and a very nice note upon which to finish the academic year 2012-13.”
