University staff graduate
Two members of staff at the University of St Andrews have graduated through the part-time degree programme.
Gill Gardner and Emma Hancox, who both work for the University’s Admissions unit, graduated with MA degrees yesterday (Thursday 21 June 2007). They are pictured together below (Emma, left, Gill right).
The Evening Degree programme is aimed at adults over the age of 21, and a General MA degree can be obtained within three to nine years, depending on prior qualifications and whether the student prefers to study one or two sessions a week. The first cohort of part-time students graduated in 2004.
Students returning to study after a gap are eased back into the way of things with a specially- designed study skills programme at the start of the course. Various financial arrangements are also in place to help those on low incomes take advantage of this flexible academic programme.
