Part-time study

An increasingly large number of students choose to study part time at the University of St Andrews. Part-time study is available both during the day and in the evenings. Some students may choose to start studying full time and switch to part-time study during their degree, while others may begin as part-time students and apply to become full-time later.

If you wish to study part time, a number of options are available to you. You can study one or two chosen subjects or study for just one or two years, in which case you can work towards a Certificate or Diploma of Higher Education.
