Hey everyone! I’ll be applying for the international excellence scholarship at St. Andrews for 2020/21.
A little bit about me: st Andrews is my insurance (sustainable development+social anthropology). My firm is oxford (human sciences).
I’m a UK citizen but haven’t been living there so am classified as overseas.

Does anyone have any tips on writing the essay for all St.A scholarships? Could someone share a sample?
I’ve been asked to write a 250 statement about how I’d benefit, past experiences, etc.

I’m in the IB and my predicted is a 44/45. I’ve been valedictorian throughout high school and have received multiple awards for academic proficiency.

Yeah me too hahah I had no idea what to expect when applying and I assume that it's quite competitive...

And yes I got one for English and History in december but a few of my classmates also applied and are still waiting. What did you apply for?

Hi! Yess if you log onto the portal and go onto funding and scholarships (same place as where you uploaded your schoalrship application) it should say the decision. I got all of my answers back - was rejected for all except for the accomodation award, but i cant pay the interanional fees. Good luck for your studies
