In line with the Scottish Government’s route map out of the Covid-19 lockdown, students who are able to travel safely are asked to plan to be with us in St Andrews for the start of the semester.
This series of guides is designed to help with your planning, explain how to minimise risk throughout your journey, and ensure that you are informed about what to expect.
The changing nature of the situation means that the central premise of these guides is that you should check most recent government guidance before you travel, and take personal responsibility for understanding quarantine requirements and how they apply.
Scotland has taken a particularly cautious approach to managing the Covid-19 crisis, so you must also be aware that behavioural expectations may be different in Scotland to those in England and elsewhere.

When you arrive you should expect life in St Andrews to be different in these key ways:
We remain committed to delivering a meaningful student experience and look forward to welcoming you back.
