Fee package for Foundation Programmes

To ensure you can focus on your studies when you come to St Andrews, the Centre for International Foundation Programmes offers an all-inclusive fee package. This covers all the major costs of your foundation year so that there are no hidden extra costs. The package includes:

  • Tuition
  • Accommodation, including a bedding pack and 14 meals per week - see below*
  • An airport transfer when you first arrive
  • Course books, handouts and other materials
  • Laboratory coats and dissection kits, if required
  • 24 hour emergency phone number
  • Programme-led and seasonal social events
  • Access to all University facilities

*Bedding and Meals

We will provide a bedding pack which will be ready for collection at David Russell Apartments when you arrive. Your bedding pack contains: 1 duvet (10.5 tog), 1 duvet cover, 1 flat sheet, 2 pillows and 2 pillowcases.

Foundation programme students have a meal plan giving them 14 meals per week during semester (i.e. not during University vacations). On Monday-Friday students are provided with breakfast and an evening meal, on Saturday and Sunday they are served breakfast and lunch. You can see sample menus for the 14-meal plan at David Russell Apartments.
