Business - Management, Economics and Finance (International Foundation) January 2022 entry
The January Business programme is designed to facilitate the transition from high school to the first year of undergraduate study in a range of academic disciplines including management, economics, and financial economics.
This intensive, multi-discipline programme enables students to complete their studies in time to enter university in September of the same year. It includes a blend of subject-related content in various related academic subjects and helps to develop the academic and language skills required for effective participation in undergraduate studies.
The programme has a high success rate. Over the past three years, all students passed the programme, with over 94% meeting the progression requirements for their chosen degree programme at St Andrews. Successful foundation students have gone on to study for single and joint Honours degrees at St Andrews and at other top UK universities.
The University of St Andrews as a whole was voted top in the UK for student academic experience in The National Student Survey 2020 as 92.7% of St Andrews final-year students gave the University top marks for 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.
“I decided to choose this Foundation programme, and I am so glad that I did! The programme helped us develop valuable skills in both our chosen degree subjects and the English language. We were taught to write essays according to the University’s standard with appropriate language. The International Foundation Programme for Business effectively prepared me for my undergraduate degree."
