Study Abroad opportunities in the School of History


St Andrews Abroad Deadline: 9 November 2018

History Abroad Deadline: 14 December 2018

Application forms will be available from 1 October in MySaint


The School of History offers several exciting study abroad opportunities for students in their third year. Study abroad is a great opportunity to gain a new perspective on your course whilst living in a different country. This fun and challenging experience gives more than a year away from St Andrews - it provides you with an impressive experience to add to your C.V. and enables you to stand out from the crowd in the job market after graduation. Study abroad students say it was the best part of their time at University, leaving them with fantastic memories, and life-long friends .

You can study abroad either by taking part in the History-specific programmes (Bonn, Dublin, Leiden, Oslo, Rutgers [currently suspended], Strasbourg), or in the University-wide St Andrews Abroad programme, which offers a wide variety of options in the USA, Canada, Australia and Singapore.

Please note that some exchange programmes are restricted by degree intention; please check the individual destination page for eligibility.
