Gateway to Arts 2021 entry
The Gateway to Arts provides supported entry into degree-level study at St Andrews for applicants who have narrowly missed our minimum entry grades and meet some, if not all, of the contextual criteria noted in the eligibility section below.
Our flexible degree structure allows students who wish to study any of the subjects offered in the Faculty of Arts to enter on this route and progress into a full degree programme at the end of year two.
The Gateway programme also offers advice and support to help ensure that students make the transition into university life.
More information for 2021 entry will be available in September 2020. For information on the current year of entry for this course, see the 2020 page.
