The Joint Degree Programme between William & Mary and the University of St Andrews is one of the few international undergraduate joint degrees offered with a U.S. university. Students complete two years at each institution and earn a single degree — a Bachelor of Arts (International Honours — with the insignia of both institutions).

The Programme offers you a greater range of academic experiences than either school can offer on its own. It gives you the opportunity to experience two distinct intellectual and national cultures. Your studies will have more breadth than a traditional St Andrews degree as well as more specialization than is usual at William & Mary.

William & Mary
University of St Andrews
Williamsburg, Virginia, USA St Andrews, Fife, Scotland
Founded in 1693, William & Mary is one of eight "Public Ivy" universities in the United States. W&M offers a broad Liberal Arts education. Regular students at W&M spend a majority of study hours devoted to subjects outside the Major. Students at W&M take courses outside their major for all four years. Founded in 1413, St Andrews is Scotland's top-ranked university. The St Andrews offers less breadth in a degree characterized by increasing depth in a single discipline. In their last two years, regular St Andrews students focus exclusively on their major discipline.

William & Mary is accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges to award baccalaureate, master’s, educational specialist, and doctoral degrees. The University of St. Andrews is not accredited by SACS Commission on Colleges and the accreditation of William & Mary does not extend to or include the University of St. Andrews or its students. Further, although William & Mary agrees to accept certain course work from the University of St. Andrews to be applied toward an award from William & Mary, that course work may not be accepted by other colleges or universities in transfer, even if it appears on a transcript from William & Mary. The decision to accept course work in transfer from any institution is made by the institution considering the acceptance of credits or course work.
