Gateway to Physics and Astronomy

The Gateway to Physics and Astronomy programme is an alternative entry route to the University of St Andrews' degree programmes offered by the School of Physics and Astronomy. The programme is aimed at Scottish students who may not have been able to obtain the grades usually required by the School due to their circumstances or educational background.

If you successfully complete the first year of our Gateway to Physics and Astronomy programme, you will be able to progress to the second year of one of our traditional degree programmes in physics and related subjects.

More information about the Gateway to Physics and Astronomy programme, including further details of the structure of the programme, are available from the School of Physics and Astronomy.
