St.Andrews is a fair sized town, with about 15,000 residents, which balloons when all the students get here.
Its quite diverse really, all the societies can provide almost any hobbie/sport that comes to mind, not to mention it is the home of golf, has tennis courts and all that.
If you mean more of a nightlife, then we have literally tons of pubs. Its the highest pub to person ratio in the country, and the city of Dundee, where the larger nightclubs are, is easy and affordable to get to and from. (There's sometimes bus deals and splitting a cab with mates is cheap)
One thing you'll notice if you decide to come here, is that people very quickly call St.Andrews "home" It really is amazing, peaceful yet vibrant, and very very little crime.
Ah, Physics, simply amazing. Im currently a 2nd year in my MPhys course and i couldnt be happier, tutorials are very small, 7 or so in 1st, and 5 in 2nd. Lectures are abotu 90 strong, so plenty of time for interaction.
Its also the 2nd best for physics, usually, in the UK and is brilliant, in course/research quality and student satisfaction.
The department is well kitted out, with the latest machines and research. Most of the lectureers also do research, so youll hear about cutting edge stuff all the time. You tutors even more so. (My fisrt year tutor got in the new for making an invisibility cloak for a specific wavelength range, while i was in his class)
Ive personally enjoyed every minute of it.
I am also a local resident of the town, ive grown up here, and now go to uni here. So you couldnt get better info abotu life here!
If you have any more questions about the course structure or the application process, just drop a pm
