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 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.”
