In 2018 the University introduced a number of Post-Graduate scholarships specifically aimed at students competing in sport at a performance level.
For golfers who have likely completed 4 years of undergraduate study, playing at a high level of competition, this opportunity is perfect for those who wish to continue their studies at a world class university whilst still competing. In the UK we are not bound by the same regulations as say, the NCAA, and therefore a post graduate student is eligible to play a full season for the University of St Andrews.
A student successfully receiving the scholarship would receive the same support and benefits as our 600 Club Scholars and be a full part of our Performance Golf Programme.
There are over 1000 post graduate students at the University studying in the different faculties of Arts, Divinity, Medicine and Science. For details on the courses available please study our Post Graduate Prospectus
The scholarships are limited to International students only and will offer financial assistance of at least 50% of the tuition fees, the details of the different tuition costs can be found here
Non-International post graduate students interested in joining the programme on a scholarship scheme are still encouraged to contact the Head Performance Coach to discuss what may be possible. The feedback from our previous post graduate students is that the decision to be a student golfer in the Home of Golf was the best decision they ever made!
