Global Online Year One is an integrated pre-degree programme designed to give you certainty in uncertain times. Taking a combination of subject-specific first-year classes along with specialist academic skills, GOYO enables you to choose your study location and take classes online for the full 2020-2021 academic year.
Successful students can achieve a Certificate of Higher Education from St Andrews or progress onto the second year of a degree in St Andrews in September 2021.
On GOYO, students will study specialist academic skills and first-year subject-specific classes. This combination is designed to develop students’ intellectual and communication skills in line with the demands of an undergraduate degree programme. Taking advantage of some of the flexibility a St Andrews degree offers, students can study two academic subjects each semester.
The University of St Andrews as a whole was voted top in the UK for student academic experience in The National Student Survey 2019 as 95% of St Andrews final year students were satisfied with the quality of the learning and teaching experience.
The University has secured a TEF Gold award for the quality of teaching and the undergraduate experience.
