Entry routes

Physics and Astronomy degrees at St Andrews offer you choice and flexibility. There are three main entry points available: the traditional entry to first year, the accelerated entry point to second year, and the Gateway  programme.

  • This can give you the broadest range of programme choices.

  • Students with outstanding qualifications could be taking an accelerated route.

  • An alternative route for students from a "widening participation" background.
