Are you interested in applying to the St Andrews William & Mary Joint Degree Programme?

Applicants to the Joint Degree Programme will be required to submit an additional 1500-2000 word essay outlining their interest in the particular academic area to which they apply. See for details about the program.

Beyond your impressive academic credentials and extra curricular accomplishments, what else makes you unique and colorful? We know nobody fits neatly into 500 words or less, but you can provide us with some suggestion of the type of person you are. Anything goes! Inspire us, impress us, or just make us laugh. Think of this optional opportunity as show and tell by proxy and with an attitude. For additional context, check out the William & Mary Admission Office video message at
