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.

8. Consultation question

Question 1
Do you agree that the Scottish Ministers should seek the Parliament's approval to repeal paragraph 17 of Schedule 6 to the Universities (Scotland) Act 1966 and therefore reinstate the ability of the University of St Andrews to hold qualifying examinations and award degrees in medicine and midwifery, as well as degrees and licences in dentistry?

Please provide reason(s) for your response including any details on the impact this may have on yourself, your organisation, or others.
