As we have a limited number of licenses, priority will be given to students who are studying away from St Andrews for the duration of their degree and therefore unable to attend workshops in the GRADskills Programme, and also to those nearer the end of their degree.  The licence gives you access to the materials for one year. Please note that you can only apply to access these materials once during your degree.

To apply for access to the Research Skills Master Programme please complete this online application form. (You will need to login to Onedrive to submit the form - your name and email address will be logged automatically.)

You will receive an email from CAPOD normally within a week with the outcome of your application. If it is approved, your email will include an access code to enable you to log in to the Epigeum online learning website to complete the full programme.
