Management MSc

Why St Andrews?
After growing up in Tokyo and going to undergrad in the States, I was hoping to broaden my horizons by attending a prestigious Masters program in Europe. I’ve also always preferred to be part of a smaller and more intimate community as opposed to a large city feel, and St Andrews ticked all of my boxes.

Finance and Management MSc

Why St Andrews?
I think the balance is achieved well at St. Andrews between rugby, academics and social life. I have never really had intentions of becoming a professional rugby player, I just enjoy playing it at a high level. This is something I feel I can achieve here. Further, I am quite into my golf, so it is just an added bonus that there are so many world class courses in the vicinity.

Devon Malcholm Arendse

St Leonards College Masters Scholar | Rugby

Finance and Management MSc

Why St Andrews?
St Andrews offers a similar balance between sport, academics and community which was offered at my previous University and this was a really important factor for me to consider. I enjoy learning about history and old architecture and St Andrews offered the perfect opportunity to pursue these interests given its many museums and old structures. I am a keen golfer and it was an instant attraction to have seven golf courses right next to the university. The University was also incredibly helpful in the application process all the way through to the travelling. This was a huge stress relief especially given the difficulty travelling with the Covid-19 pandemic.
