Business - Management, Economics and Finance (International Year Zero)
September 2023 entry
This 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 multi-discipline programme 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 with 100% of students completing the programme successfully in 2022. Graduates have gone on to study for single and joint Honours degrees at St Andrews and 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 2022 as 89% of St Andrews final-year students gave the University top marks for the quality of the learning and teaching experience.
“I was a bit apprehensive at the thought of going to university in a foreign country. My experience with the IFP programmes' wonderful teachers, staff and students eased my concerns about living abroad. The most important thing I must commend the programme for is its ability to prepare students for the rigorous expectation of the university life. I found the Business programme extremely helpful while preparing to take my first-year modules. I genuinely do not believe I would have similarly excelled academically if had opted to go straight into university.”
