    We don't have Art or Design here, there's Art History though if you like that. :P And yes, you can do the Forensic Psychology Masters with the MA, both the MA and BSc are BPS accredited.
    Yes, yes, it was just an example Oh, wonderful! Thanks again, you cannot imagine how relieved I am that I've actually found this long-awaited answer! Have a good night. x

    Hey, I have a question about studying abroad! I want to apply for the IR + French + Spanish course and there are two courses listed, one with the extra mention of a year abroad (so 5 years in total) and the other one without a year abroad (so 4 years)! Is it also possible to go abroad on a 4 year course? Say, in your third year or something? Any advice would be appreciated!

    Hi Lola, I'm a languages student at SA. It is certainly possible to go abroad on a four year course, but only if you take the third year as a university year in another country i.e. you go to Spain and study IR, Spanish and French for a year or you go to France and study IR, French and Spanish for a year. You have to get pretty reasonable grades in second year to be eligible for this option and if you choose to go to, say, France you'll have to get the go ahead from the Spanish and IR departments to study these subjects abroad. and vice versa The grades you get abroad count as what would have been your junior honours year back in St Andrews (the third year). You then come back to St Andrews for the final year of your degree.

    The five year option (what I'm on right now) involves taking a sort of year out, but one which is credited by the university so it either involves working for the British Council as an English language assistant in a school or taking some kind of employment abroad approved by the university. During this year you produce a 5000 word project but there are no exams. When you get back you do both your junior and your senior honours years in St Andrews and graduate a year after your peers on a four year course.

    Hope this is what you wanted to know!

    Hey. I'm currently doing my A-levels and looking to apply to St Andrews for Economics and Modern History. However, coming from a london state school i've been hearing a lot of negativity from teachers...e.g you won't fit in, their all posh rich kids. i know these are exaggerated claims but i'm at a lockhead on what to do, any londoners over there on TSR willing to give me an insight? would be especially grateful if someone could tell me how the course is going for them?

    Not a Londoner (well, not since I was 7), but I definitely haven't come across anyone problematic. There certainly are rich people, 'posh' people, etc. but there's such a mix of people here. As far as I've noticed, people make friends based on their interests and personalities, not their economic backgrounds and upbringings. While there may be some posh people, they're all friendly, and they aren't a majority.

    The problem with St Andrews isn't necessarily too many rich folk but the oozing pretentiousness of most of the students.

    I would say that "most" of the students is a generalisation. Whilst such people do exist, and probably in greater numbers at St Andrews than at other universities, the fact is that many of the students are not like this. The vast majority of the people I know are very down to earth and not pretentious at all.

    Maybe we have different interpretations of that-in my experience such people are there but are very hard to find amidst the pretentious majority.

    Probably. I would contact the warden in the first instance if it's in halls, or student services if not.

    The psychology tripos?

    I'm assuming you mean what extra subjects you can take along with psychology in your first year? St Andrews doesn't do politics or sociology (although some people take international relations in replacement of politics). If you're looking to go into neuropsychology then doing the neuroscience degree, or simply psychology and biology will be helpful.

    I don't want to go down the pure Neuroscience route, I definitely want to stay more on the behavioural side of things.

    I took it in my first 2 years as my extra subject, but dropped it before entering honours. I'd basically say study what you're interested in, or pick up a completely new subject which you like the look of. That's what the flexibility of the system is all about.
