Degree routes

At the University of St Andrews, our degree programmes are designed to allow flexible study options for all students. The structure of our degrees allows you the opportunity to change the emphasis or subject of your degree throughout the first two years of study. It is possible to enter the University to study one degree programme and graduate with an entirely different degree, depending on your interests, previous qualifications and your first-year module choices. You will have until the end of your second year to decide what your final degree subject or subjects will be.

Foundation programmes

Our International Foundation programmes are designed to prepare you for successful university study. The courses combine the study of a range of academic subjects with academic English and scholarship skills and provide a pathway onto our degree programmes.
