Masters Students Skills and Training

During your time at St Andrews you will develop in many different ways, and build a wide range of skills that will support you until graduation and beyond. There are many development opportunities open to you, offered via a number of University centres, services, clubs and societies. We recommend that you keep a log of what you do and when, as this will come in very handy when writing your CV or applying for jobs!
