“I greatly benefited from the excellent teaching and professional guidance of my supervisor and other teachers. With the support and encouragement from members of academic and administrative staff, I obtained a number of research grants and job opportunities within and outside St Andrews. I was able to broaden my exposure through research and conference trips in Europe, America, and East Asia. All these fruitful experiences helped bring me job offers soon after graduation.”

Researchstudents enrolled foradegreeatanotherinstitution (usually outside the UnitedKingdom) may spend a semester or year of study under the supervision of the School of Art History in St Andrews. Upon successful application to the School such students have the same access to supervision, classes, seminars, libraries and computers as other St Andrews research students. This can be thought of as the postgraduate student’s counterpart to Junior Year Abroad programmes offered by many North American institutions at undergraduate level.
The School takes pride in offering a relaxed but stimulating environment in which staff and students contribute equally to the creation of a collegial and friendly atmosphere. Several members of staff have taught in Europe and in North America and have experience of international teaching practice.
