Whitney – 2014

Whitney, a 2014 student on the Bible and the Contemporary World programmeThe University of St Andrews had always been the “dream school” since I was an undergraduate. When I discovered the Bible and Contemporary World distance program, I was excited to have found a way to continue my education at a world-renowned institution both abroad and at home.

The experience at St Mary’s is unparalleled. The balance between the residence week and the at-home work made it possible to succeed in an exceptional program while maintaining my busy schedule of full time work and parenting a young child. The residence weeks are the perfect opportunity to immerse yourself in the academic work, meet colleagues from all around the world, and really get to know the module instructors and support staff.

My time in the program was truly invaluable – it has influenced my personal and professional life, and I am fully prepared to continue my work at the PhD level.
