"The International Foundation Programme for Science provided me with first-hand experience of what it’s like to study Maths at an undergraduate level. Throughout the course of the program, I also had the opportunity to meet a diverse group of students from every part of the world and was exposed to a multitude of ideas and opinions that broadened my outlook, I was able to establish a network of friends before beginning my undergraduate degree. My experience as a student at St Andrews has been nothing short of amazing thanks to the Science programme."
