Overseas students celebrate exam success

Monday 18 June 2007

Over 60 students from a dozen countries have successfully completed University of St Andrews Foundation Programmes this year.

St Andrews is Scotland’s most internationally diverse university – the student community in the Fife town comprises 100 distinct nationalities – and the English Language Teaching Centre exists to provide high quality English language training for overseas students seeking to go on to study either at St Andrews or other UK universities.

Since 1990, the St Andrews Centre has been dedicated to delivering English language training to students from all over the world. It is staffed by well-qualified language teaching professionals from across the UK, most of whom have experience teaching in other countries and are therefore very sympathetic to the needs of overseas students.

“I’m delighted so many students have graduated from our programme this year and that so many have chosen to go on to full-time study at St Andrews, despite having offers from other high-ranking universities,” said Jane Magee, Director of English Language Teaching.

Pictured above celebrating after their graduation ceremony this week are L to R:

Madi Konakbayev (Kazakstan); Azmi Mehmet  Mutlu (Turkey); Alexis Picourt (France); Lorna Fleming (Course Director); Selen Demireren (Turkey) and Toshu Nakamura (Japan).
