    I'm in Y12 looking at assorted unis for history and I've been attracted by St Andrews a bit as it's such an old university as well as it basically being Oxbridge in the quality of it's history degree, but as I'm English I've always enjoyed learning about my Tudors, Plantagenets and Saxons etc so when I got my St Andrews prospectus which said you'd have to learn Scottish history I was worried I'd have to substitute learning about Tudors (probably my favourite epoch) for it, any current (preferably English) undergraduates able to enlighten me a bit on the versatility of the History course at St Andrews and whether or not I'll be able to study English history there would be appreciated.

    I'm not sure if you're applying for Modern, Medieval, Ancient, or just full on History, but I'm gonna be studying Modern come September this year (and I'm a Scottish applicant) 😁
    By the looks of the module listings for Modern History in first and second year, you won't be learning much about Britain at all in your first year - with a module solely dedicated to Scotland and England and their relationship between the years 1500-2000 in second year.
    Then in your third and fourth years you have the choice of loads of different modules with lists available here:

    I'm sure it's possible to avoid all contact with the Scottish modules if you so wish :lol:

    I'm also not sure how familiar you are with the Scottish University system but it's significantly more flexible in all regards when compared to the English one.
