Overall Experience
I learned out to get comfortable in a foreign environment, how to make new friends. - Middlebury College View Entire Review

About

The St Andrews program offers students the opportunity to live and study in a medieval city and centuries-old university, while enjoying Scottish culture and everyday life in a charming seaside college town. A wide range of courses at the University of St Andrews in a variety of disciplines are offered in such diverse subjects as Astrophysics, Biblical Studies, Chemistry, Comparative Literature, Earth Science, Economics, Environmental Sciences, International Relations, Medieval History, Modern Languages, Philosophy, Psychology, and Scottish History, just to name a few. You may enroll for one semester or a full year.  Ancient University traditions such as Raisin Monday, The May Dip, and the iconic red academic gown are yours to fully experience in addition to modern clubs and societies. The Overseas Society offers a varied program of activities to study abroad students from elegant balls and traditional Scottish dancing (ceilidhs) to lunch with local families, Thanksgiving and Christmas parties, and trips to places of historic interest. And, in this ancestral home of golf, as a St Andrews student you can play all seven world-renowned golf courses in town (including The Old Course) at a discounted rate.
