University of St Andrews - degrees and licenses in medicine and dentistry: consultation

This consultation sought views on removing a legislative prohibition under the Universities (Scotland) Act 1966 which prevents the University of St. Andrews from awarding degrees in medicine and dentistry.


The Scottish Government issued a targeted consultation on 18 May 2020.  A targeted stakeholder consultation was considered to be the proportionate approach given that the proposal is narrow in scope and has a small number of interested parties. The consultation closed on 29 June 2020.
