Congratulations to all of our students who are graduating this year!
Hopefully we will see most of you again on Wednesday 14 June where the School will host a small reception in the coffee area between 11.00 and 13.00 for you and your guests, with a glass of bubbly and of course some cakes from Fisher and Donaldson.
Jack Waller, one of our MSci students in the School of Computer Science, has won the Software Engineering Undergraduate of the Year.
Well done to finalists Ben Sanders and Hannah Falk also Computer Science students who made it to the final of the awards, organised by targetjobs.
The targetjobs Undergraduate of the Year Awards is an annual competition aimed at finding the best undergraduates in the UK. Each award is partnered by a prominent graduate recruiter who provides a fantastic prize for the winner, which could include a paid internship, a trip abroad, or other exclusive opportunities.
The School of Computer Science will hold its Offer Holder days for September 2023 entry on Saturdays 18th and 25th March 2023. These events are open only to undergraduate applicants who have received an offer to study Computer Science at St Andrews. Along with your offer to study an undergraduate programme involving Computer Science, you will receive an email with details of how to sign up for one of the offer holder days.
Our Computer Science Offer Holder events allow you to see more of St Andrews and the School while also learning more about the great experience we offer. We have a full programme of exciting and stimulating events, including talks from lecturers and some of our current students, and the chance to try out our state-of-the-art teaching labs by participating in a coding activity. No prior CS or programming experience is required for the activity. We will provide you with lunch and refreshments during the day. Parents, guardians, carers or companions are welcome to attend the day with you. Please provide the necessary information when you register for the event.
At the end of the Offer Holder day, prospective students also have the option to attend a dinner with some of the other applicants, and current undergraduate and postgraduate students. This gives offer-holders the opportunity to ask any remaining questions in an informal setting.
The events will run from 10am until 8pm (including the evening meal), so we do recommend that you plan to spend the majority of your day in St Andrews.
Please email email@example.com with any queries.
