Post-Graduate Scholarships

In 2018 the University introduced a number of Post-Graduate scholarships specifically aimed at students competing in sport at a performance level.

For golfers who have likely spent 4 years of undergraduate study, playing at a high level of competition, this opportunity is perfect for those who wish to continue their studies at a world class university whilst still competing. In the UK we are not bound by the same regulations as say, the NCAA, and therefore a post graduate student is eligible to play a full season for Saints Golf.

A student successfully receiving the scholarship would join our Performance Squad and receive all the supported benefits of being part of that squad, details on this can be found on our Programme Overview

There are over 1000 post graduate students at the University studying in the different faculties of Arts, Divinity, Medicine and Science. For details on the courses available please study our Post Graduate Prospectus

The scholarships are limited to International students only and will offer financial assistance of at least 50% of the tuition fees, the details of the different tuition costs can be found here

Non-International post graduate students interested in joining the programme on a scholarship scheme are still encouraged to contact the Director of Golf to see what may be possible. The feedback from our previous post graduate students is that the decision to be a student golfer in the Home of Golf was the best decision they ever made!

  • “The golf programme they have at St Andrews is a great option for players who want top level academics but do not want to compromise on the quality of the golf programme - it's a special opportunity to be a student athlete in the Home of Golf.”

  • “As a parent of a student presently attending St Andrews and playing for Saints Golf, I cannot imagine another University anywhere being able to offer a better golfing and educational experience than the one my son is receiving.”
