Student Profile(s)


Studying in such renowned and well-established universities as St Andrews and Heriot-Watt was the best academic decision I have ever made. The course is challenging, but very well organised and I am learning a lot. The staff are very friendly and eager to help the students. One of my favourite parts of the course is the work in the laboratory. It allows a much deeper understanding of the theory and also exploration of our own ideas.
