Prizes and awards
A number of prizes are awarded annually to undergraduates in Management, in recognition of academic and non-academic achievement.
£200 awarded to the most deserving third year Management student in the Faculty of Arts.
This is an annual award for academic excellence, promoted by the four Deans of the University.
Undergraduate students who achieve an outstanding result over the course of an academic year, have their names inscribed on the Deans' List – an honour which also appears on their University transcript.
The criteria for the award are strict. Only those students taking at least 120 credits towards an approved degree programme will be eligible, and all credits have to be taken within the four Faculties of the University of St Andrews.
Students who meet all of the criteria and who obtain a credit-weighted mean grade of 16.5 or above for the year will be recorded on the Deans' List. The rules are adapted for part-time students, who must achieve the minimum credit-weighted mean of 16.5 in 120 credits, taken part-time over a maximum of three academic sessions.

£100, awarded at both undergraduate and postgraduate levels, to students in the School of Management who have contributed to the School, in particular in its outreach activities.
