International Foundation programmes
International Foundation programmes enable international students from a wide range of countries to develop the necessary skills to meet the demands of a degree programme at the University of St Andrews.
These programmes provide excellent preparation, combining academic subjects with language development alongside the skillset for successful study at a British university. Find out why you should study a foundation programme.
