Student Profile(s)


Studying at St Andrews is a truly unique experience. The mediaeval coastal setting is calm and picturesque, while the University’s
reputation and research are truly world class. The School’s low student to staff ratio allows you to feel like one of the family, and develop
close relationships with supervisors and staff. There is a strong student community, and work life balances well with social life. My Psychology degree has enabled me to experience a range of different subject areas, whilst allowing me to hone my specific interests. I have grown not only as an academic but also as a person, and feel confident and well equipped to undertake new challenges.
