I've loved my university experience. In first year I was unhappy, but this was mostly because I was still settling in and getting used to the work-social life balance. I also wasn't suited to hall-living, and because there weren't many good common-area spaces (the hall was under construction and had shut off its largest wing) I found it difficult making close friends and having to spend so much time in the one room. That being said, it was great for meeting a lot of people. Now that I'm third-year, I'm able to choose modules I find enjoyable, which has made me a more focused student. Balancing society and commitments/show rehearsals with work and social life also comes more easily now, and I have made a lot of close friends. Overall, a very rewarding experience.

I have absolutely loved my time at St Andrews, I am dreading the whole experience coming to an end! I have met so many wonderful people here, from all over the world, with whom I have become really close and hope very much to stay in touch with indefinitely. The staff here have been among the most inspiring I have ever met, and have instilled in me a passion for History which I didn't previously know I had within me! The number of opportunities available here for personal and academic development is staggering. And to top it all off, I have loved spending three and a half years in this beautiful, historical city, so rich in culture and life. I would recommend St Andrews to anyone without a moment's hesitation; it has been the perfect uni for me

Overall my unjversity experience has been a very busy time, filled with work and societies and friends. I have found the course interesting but also challenging and the adjustment to university life and study has been well guided.

Even better than I expected; easier to make friends if you live in halls, good resources, plenty of events for career development, good nightlife even though its a small town.
