University of St. Andrews
The University of St Andrews is delighted to offer programs that enable students from higher education institutions around the world to spend a semester or academic year at St Andrews as visiting students. Every semester, St. Andrews welcomes a new group of visiting students who explore their intellectual interests in a variety of subjects and who enjoy a taste of St Andrews student life, while enriching our community with new ideas and different perspectives.
Teaching is organized on a semester calendar very much like Princeton's. Students studying abroad for the year may apply for a $15,000 scholarship from the St. Andrew’s Society of Philadelphia.
Student Experiences"St. Andrews is like a fairytale. The small town somehow manages to house Scotland's oldest university, ruins of a medieval castle and cathedral, three beautiful beaches, a world-famous golf course, and a beautiful coastal walking path. A typical week might include classes, a golf lesson, essay deadlines, a bonfire on the beach, a traditional Scottish ceilidh, and a spontaneous jump off the pier into the North Sea. The University itself offers an incredible variety of subjects and attracts talented students from all over the world. Because students concentrate so early, they are expected to interact much more deeply with their disciplines than students at a liberal arts university. This means that in one semester, my understanding and ability to do work in three disciplines-- philosophy, theology, and biblical studies-- was greatly enriched. I highly recommend spending a semester-- or even a year-- studying at the University of St. Andrews!" -Alexandra Mairone '17
