St. Andrews University is the university at St. Andrews in Fife.

It is the oldest university in Scotland and one of the oldest in Britain.

Bishop Henry Wardlaw founded the university in 1412, and it was confirmed the following year by a bill of Pope Benedict XIII.

The college of St. Salvator was founded in 1450, followed by the college of St. Leonard in 1512. The two were merged in 1747.

The theological faculty is housed in St. Mary`s College, founded in 1538.
