University’s investment in North East Fife showcased at Westminster

The enormous contribution that the University of St Andrews makes to North East Fife, Scotland and the world has been celebrated in the Houses of Parliament.

North East Fife MP Stephen Gethins hosted a reception in Parliament last week to recognise the work the University is involved in and the investment it is making in the future, including the multi-million green energy centre at Guardbridge, a new community access music centre and the creation of the world-leading Scottish Oceans Institute.

Speaking at the event, Principal Sally Mapstone also talked about the efforts being made to build a new Madras College at Langlands and her hopes that greater educational links could be forged between the school and University.

Professor Mapstone also spoke about her involvement in the Universities Scotland review into widening access for students from a range of backgrounds.

Commenting afterwards, Stephen Gethins MP said: “This was a great opportunity to showcase to other MPs, Lords and interested parties the great work that the University is doing now and its plans for the future.”
