Euan, Third Year Physics

It was after attending one of the School of Physics & Astronomy’s visiting days during my sixth year at school in Edinburgh that I was convinced that St Andrews was the university for me. Everyone in the School was very friendly and had an infectious enthusiasm for their subject. Having now spent three years studying physics, and a whole summer carrying out research in experimental physics within the School, my initial impression has not changed one bit.

The School provides a great all round learning environment. The teaching and laboratory facilities are modern and well appointed. But it is the fantastic community spirit that makes it stand out. Right from the outset I have found that all the staff take an interest in your individual studies. In my eyes it is this close relationship between the lecturers, postgrads and undergraduate students, combined with St Andrews’ outstanding reputation for physics research that makes it the perfect place to study physics. St Andrews is also a great place for a keen golfer.
