    Good range of teaching topics

    The university is well structured and as a modern languages student, I have the opportunity to study many different things across multiple themes/topics. I am given chances to practise all communication skills across the languages that I study.

    Academic Growth and Mental Health Issues

    During my first semester and St Andrews, I was able to grow immensely and react to many changes in my school environment. The help from staff, especially tutors, was incredible, especially in regard to writing essays. I was new to this type of coursework required in my modules, so I was incredibly grateful to get the help I needed from office hours and email inquiries. One of the concerns I have with St Andrews is the accessibility of student help services. I know multiple students, including myself, who were going through mental health issues or crises during the semester due to coursework. However, meetings with student help services were limited, and they were not able to provide many options to seek help, leaving many students to deal with their issues on their own. One thing I would like to see improved is the resources available for students going through a rough mental period, and clear instructions on how to seek this help. Overall, the academic staff at St. Andrews are incredibly helpful and eager to see you improve, which is my favorite aspect about the school.

    Excellent teaching, but scope is narrow

    At sub-honours, the university’s module system feels very flexible, as students can choose modules from subjects that are not part of their degree title. However, at honours, the selection of modules available within your subject(s) changes each year. Some years are better than others. Additionally, the addition of a dissertation in your final year makes it much harder to choose modules you are actually interested in. Even with the option to not do a dissertation (an option available to joint-honours students), the student’s choices will still be restricted, as they need to do a year-long module rather than 2 semester-long modules. It becomes rather restrictive. No matter what module you choose, however, the teacher of that module will be extremely knowledgeable and enthusiastic about their subject and, although you may not find it the most interesting, you still appreciate the passion that they feel for it.

    University of St Andrews

    The University of St Andrews, situated in coastal Fife, is a wonderful place to study and live. From vibrant social life to quiet coffee shops and libraries, St Andrews has something for everyone. My favourite thing about St Andrews is the people. This quaint little town is home to lovely, kind locals that are always helpful and welcoming to students. The students themselves are also kind and create a diverse and inclusive community. There are over 150 clubs and societies that are all extremely welcoming and are great ways to make friends and connect with like-minded people and you are sure to find something new that you will love. University definitely wouldn’t have been as good an experience if I had gone somewhere other than here.

    Culture of seeking enchantment

    The highlight of my time at the University of St Andrews is the culture of seeking enchantment that students create. Most students make friends outside their study program, and I love how discussions between friends very frequently center on what they learn in their respective classes. Most people in the town really value insights you can get from talking with people different from you, which results in an openness to a variety of experiences. Additionally, there is a culture of aestheticizing knowledge and the process of obtaining it; because of this, many students find it easy to be passionate about their degree. The norm of in-depth discussions contributed to feeling that I have undergone a lot of personality growth. Finally, lectures and seminars are well organized and the staff is very respectful and friendly.

    The Small and Mighty Town by the Sea

    St Andrews is a wonderful, picturesque place straight out of a period-drama. But the university isn’t for the faint-hearted. I would only recommend this university for those who are highly driven and studious, but also want to have a good time.
    For humanities students, there is a constant stream of readings and essays that need to be completed. If you stay on top of these, the student can easily enjoy the social side of the university. There are so many societies and clubs to join, with interests that range far and wide.
    I studied Art History as my main subject, and completed modules in Classical Studies, Management, Divinity, and Film Studies across my first two years. All courses demanded a lot, and at the time I wish I had attended a different university where I could focus on one thing. But looking back, I am grateful for my learning experience, as those subjects ended up making me a well-rounded student with more academic experience than my peers at other universities.
    The best thing was the town, there isn’t a place like it. I think the calm, university town cultivates studying. St Andrews isn’t well connected to cities, and so on the slower days, studying is all you can do. Students make their own fun, and you really have to be willing to put in the effort to get the most out of the university and its community.

    Best Housing Residence

    I lived in standard catered accommodation (St Regulus Hall) and it was lovely. The hall committee and attendants are very kind and do their best to help all new students (new students or international students) settle in. The rooms are fairly basic dormitory style rooms but clean, comfortable and safe. I think that it is excellent as a living facility.

    House

    The living room was great. I stayed in the University Hall (I love Uni Hall) in the Lumsden building. Most of the rooms here were private rooms, and someone came in every day and threw out the trash and vacuumed every week. All dormitory rooms also come with nice bedding. But most of all, I loved living. All but one lived on my floor, and we became very close.
