The sun shone last week as students at the University of St Andrews graduated on the completion of their studies.
Following ceremonies each day in the Younger Hall, new graduates took part in the academic procession to St Salvator's Quad. The celebrations throughout the week saw students mark their achievements with friends, family and academic staff.
Here are a selection of photographs from the week’s events.
