    Night Life in Fife

    The university experience, in general, is a great, comprehensive one that I find allows students to really find themselves academically and the university has amazingly broad and well-facilitated sports societies as well as societies for the arts and even one for if your kryptonite is a cup of tea and not to mention that there is a plethora of pubs and bars around town with a good time written all over.
    It can be hard to find places to go out to, however, given the size of the town with its three main streets which means often you’re frequenting the same places all the time and sometimes the Union isn’t exactly the idea of a night out but it is a great melting pot to meet people all the same; I spent much of my time at the bops in the Union and some of the people I met are now my best friends. Plus, Dundee and Edinburgh aren’t a million miles away either which broadens your options.

    An interdisciplinary study of literature and culture

    This programme provided a substantial variety of textual material, and we interacted with many theoretical spaces and academics in the taught portion of the MLitt course. One of the significant elements of the programme is its interdisciplinarity, with students also receiving many opportunities to expand their field of study beyond the parameters of the programme, whether it was for presentations, essays, or the dissertation project. This facilitated diverse discussions between classmates and the expansive bodies of work, with many people choosing to study texts from outside of the dates outlined in the programme’s handbook, leading to generative applications of theory. The lecturers and staff were very open to these forms of work. I will note, however, that there was a limited focus on Scottish literature within the taught component of the programme, and this should be taken into account when applying.

  • History

    Diverse, pro-active, informative, cooperative, but still improving

    To pursue a career in History, Middle Eastern, and especially Iranian, Studies, the University of St Andrews is one of the best places possible. High-profile and highly knowledgeable lecturers, a great program, and the splendid amount of relevant books in the library easily help you to have a firm grip on previous scholarship, ideas, and of course, debates.
    The best feature in sessions is the ability of instructors to prevent distraction from the discussion-based flow without manipulating how the students think. This demands good knowledge and presence of mind, which most instructors possess. They are also always there for help and ready to have a conversation with you, in which you will get good advice, and enjoy a part of their contagious keenness to their research interests.
    Managers see diversity as an opportunity and are quite supportive of women, international students (from more than 140 countries), and of course, all gender, sexuality, race, and ability minorities. The university itself has a respectful, high-spirit atmosphere, with mostly helpful staff. It is on an eco-friendly pathway, going ahead fast (which means could still be improved).
    However, there is not exclusively good news; the accommodation in the town is expensive with mediocre quality (one of the reasons some people prefer to live in Dundee);
    St Andrews is not the most exciting place to live (the second reason!);
    Sometimes you receive a response from your department or other authorities way slower than what you would expect (to be hoped to change after the pandemic);
    and finally, you might be overwhelmed by emails (almost all of them are necessary, but indeed could be quite shorter if political correctness does not bother the writers that much).

    Finally, I assume St Andrews graduates will have pretty good chances based on their advantages in terms of CV, knowledge, and integrity. With fewer positions available for historians and Middle-Eastern specialists, this might become even more important in the future.

    Great experience

    I am loving my experience here. I have met most of my close friends during my first two years at St Andrews. The university has so many resources for academic, personal, and professional growth. Being a chemistry student, I am very much satisfied with the faculty, facilities and curriculum.

    Inclusive and diverse

    Being an Indian from Singapore, i was hoping to join a University with immense diversity and inclusion. The University of St Andrews did not disappoint me. I felt right at home instantly, with such great internationality and friendly faces all over the town. Being a small town, everyone in St Andrews becomes like family and treats you no less than that. I have been involved in a number of the hundreds of societies that the univeristy offers and it has enhanced my CV like i would have never imagined. Being from such an academically excellent university is also a plus point when looking for an internship during University. I feel appreciated by all the professors and appreciate them equally. With the flexibility in courses, it has been easier for me to explore and decide on what im interested in.

    Few of my favourite days

    I just finished my first year of university at the University of St. Andrews. It has been a very unique experience. I wouldn’t say that there are no lows. I have definitely felt lonely and scared at times. However, I have met the most wonderful freshers and seniors who have been there for me through everything. I have learnt so much from the faculty. I studied a very different academic system in high school so adjusting to the new system was something I feared for very very long. However, I received continuous support from the psychology department and the career centre- Which helps you write your essay step by step. This definitely made me a better write and student. Moreover, it eased my anxiety and made it easier for me to make friends and enjoy in my free time. I love all my classes. We have lab classes every week for 2 hours which gives you a practical experience of what we study the entire week. It makes it easier to apply what we’ve studied to the real world- this definitely makes me fall in love with what I am studying even more. I enjoy all the events and parties in college. Being a place with a lot of International students, everyone is very open-minded and friendly. St. Andrews is definitely a great university and I would definitely recommend it.

    My home - St. Andrews

    St. Andrews is more than just a university. It is my home, my happy place and my comfort. People say that your first year of university is very difficult but it was just the opposite. The students, locals, faculty are all so friendly and positive that it always keeps my spirits high. I wish everyone has the same university experience as me because according to me it’s the best one. I study management and the school is so inclusive and everything is so applicable to the real world which always makes learning more fun. The professors are very engaging and most of them even write the books of our syllabus. The traditions are definitely the icing on the cake.

    The small little place called home

    One of the most renowned universities for a reason. St. Andrews is definitely worth all the praises and more. It has the best student life – parties, balls, events and numerous traditions.
    When it comes to academics, professors are always available to help and there are small tutorials so you can get individual attention and help every week!!
    Moreover the views are breathtaking.
