Laidlaw Scholars Poster

The aim of the Laidlaw Scholarship Programme is to equip undergraduate students with the necessary research and leadership skills to help them fulfil their ambitions beyond their course of study, whether they intend to pursue a career in research or in another sector. In the summer of 2017 fifty Laidlaw Scholars designed, pursued and reported on a research question of their own devising, working with an academic in their chosen School.

You are invited to attend a viewing of the posters created by this year’s Laidlaw Scholars.

Monday 30 October 2017, 1100 – 1200 and 1530 – 1630
Lower College Hall, St Salvator’s Quad

The Programme is generously sponsored by Lord Laidlaw of Rothiemay.

Reminder to all students regarding exam arrangements

Dear Students,

This is a reminder that normally all exams, including resits, must take place in St Andrews, during one of the three official diets. The same goes for any postponement of a deferred assessment beyond the original academic year.

Please be reminded that:

  1. a) you must not plan to leave St Andrews before the end of the December and May diets, in case it is necessary to reschedule an exam to the end of its diet; and
  2. b) if a request for exam deferral is granted, it will require presence in St Andrews during the August diet.

Thank you,

Graham Kirby, Stephen Tyre and Martin Campbell
