    Hello!

    My sister is going to study in Scotland. She is an international student, so choosing a community college for her is not easy. She is interested in studyng Fine Arts. If anyone has any advice on which further education college she should choose, she would be grateful.
    She was looking for further education colleges in St Andrews, but coudn't find any.

    Thanks!

    Do you mean university or college? As they are very different things in Scotland. One of the best for art would probably be Glasgow School of Art.

    I meant colleges. We both thought that if there is St Andrews University there must be academically excellent community colleges too:rolleyes:
    Sorry, if it sounds stupid. We are both international students, so not quite familiar with Scottish education system

    Ah I'm not sure then, St Andrews is very small so I would be surprised if there were many colleges there. I know where I live, Glasgow, there are a lot. One of the best being City College, Glasgow and a close friend of mine is doing illustration there. You apply to the colleges directly on their website, but I've never heard of colleges in St Andrews. I may be wrong though, Dundee would probably be your best bet if that's the area you want to live in.

    Thank you for replying so quickly I also never heard of them. She likes St Andrews, but most probably will have to go somewhere else.. If there are no collges in St Andrews

    I am myself interested in studying Art History at St Andrews, and I am also looking for some information regarding my studies.

    Oh, I didn't know that. Thank you! I didn't know that it is possible to apply to a university after completing just a year at college. But would it be possible for her? She has a certificate for completion of grade 9.

    Depending on what qualifications she has now she may have to do more than a year at college but it's certainly possible
