There are only a few places that claim to be 'clubs' and ultimately none of them quite have the feel of a city club. However, this is easily made up for by the wide range in pubs and bars. Personally I love the student union more than anywhere else because it's the cheapest and usually has an event on. However, various sports clubs tend to make some of the other bars more exciting on various weekdays. If you're more game for city clubbing and 'going on the pull' is your ideal night out then the nightlife of St Andrews probably isn't for you, as you will, and I mean will, meet your one night stand the next day in tesco. All bars close at 2am - a fact that frustrates everyone. The people and the place make up for it though.×
Have a weekly budget and stick to it. Order food online with other people if you can, and don't do all your shopping in Tesco.Report

League table rankings
Here's where this university ranks in the three main league tables (where available), which are calculated using a combination of stats that they each weight in different ways. They’re a handy guide but don’t offer the full picture – just because a university is top (or bottom) of the league tables doesn’t mean it is (or isn’t) the right choice for you.
