Recent Graduate Discount

In an initiative designed to recognise the loyalty of our students, the University of St Andrews offers a 10% discount in postgraduate tuition fees to students who are eligible to graduate or who have graduated from St Andrews within the last three academic years and are starting a postgraduate programme with the University of St Andrews.

Students who have attended the University within the last three academic years via an Exchange or Study Abroad programme are also eligible for the 10% discount. Students will only be eligible for the discount upon unconditional offer of a place on a postgraduate degree programme.
